Property Division

father-loveWhen it comes time to dissolve a marriage or domestic partnership, a primary concern for both parties may be the division of property. California is a community property state, meaning that all property accumulated through the marriage (marital assets) will be equally divided.

At R.S.C. Law Group, we have extensive experience in cases of property division that range from simple to highly complex. When you need to protect your rights and your financial interests into the future, we are advocates you can trust.

You must be proactive in defending your financial security at the time of divorce or partnership dissolution. We offer the legal advocacy necessary to identify all marital assets and claim the financial property you are entitled to. Contact our Monterey / San Jose law office today to schedule an initial FREE consultation and assert your rights at the time of property division.

Discovery and Investigation in Dividing Marital Assets:

Attorney, Rory Coetzee, together with his team of experts, will investigate and identify all assets and debts in your case. It is your attorney’s role to help characterize property as community property or separate property. Mr. Coetzee's role is to protect your rights to both your separate property and marital assets. Our legal team will also look at all of your options and alternatives when seeking to divide the assets of your marriage.

Complex Division of Assets and Debts: 

While some property division cases are relatively simple, others can involve complex assets or debts including 401(k)s, pensions, retirement accounts, military benefits, stocks, bonds, and real estate. When you are facing the division of property, it is critical that you work with an experienced advocate who can identify all hidden assets and protect your entitlements. Complex property division cases often involve collaborating with experts including forensic accountants and investigators. We have extensive experience in handling even the most difficult cases and will aggressively assert your rights.

Partnership dissolution and property division: 

In addition to asserting the rights of individuals at the time of divorce, we are also experienced in partnership dissolution matters. These cases may involve unmarried couples, and other non-marital partnership agreements. Since federal law does not recognize the partnership, tax issues and other differences may affect the outcome of your case. We will assist you in asserting your rights to property at the time of dissolution.
