Property Division

Property division can be an extremely contentious part of the entire divorce procedure. The property that is considered to be owned jointly by both spouses can be equally or unequally distributed. Ultimately, the state law is intended to result in evenhanded property distribution. With JB Dath Law working with you will become fully aware of your circumstances before, during and after the divorce in order to help you achieve the best possible outcome.

There are several aspects that are considered when property division is undertaken. Some of these include:

  • Marriage duration
  • Contribution of both spouses to the marriage (including homemaker and childrearing contributions)
  • Contribution of one spouse to the other’s career or education
  • Intentional waste or dissipation of marital assets or property after filing for divorce or within two years prior to filing.
  • The best interests of any minor children

We have the knowledge and understanding of California law that will benefit your divorce proceedings. We understand that it is important to you and your family that the property distribution between you and your spouse is as fair as possible. We will always work closely with you to attempt amicable collaboration with the other side. However,  sometimes this isn’t possible and when that occurs, JB Dath (as a skilled trial lawyer) will prepare you for trial.  Rest assured that we will aggressively protect your rights throughout litigation.

Our ultimate goal is your complete and total satisfaction. If you need help with Property Division or any other family law issue, please contact JB Dath Law to schedule your free consultation.
