Rancho Cucamonga Property Division Lawyer
Making Sure That You Get Your Fair Share of Assets
Coming to an agreement regarding who gets what property in a divorce can be difficult. Each spouse may think they are solely entitled to an asset when in fact, California law states that anything gained over the course of the marriage is considered community property and should be divided equally. The only exceptions to this rule are gifts and inheritances. If you are having trouble with the division of your marital property, reach out to the Law Office of Gary S. Austin. As an experienced Rancho Cucamonga divorce attorney, I can assist you with the equitable division of the assets earned during your marriage. I can also represent you in mediation as well as in court.

Valuations in California Divorce
As part of divorce proceedings, both parties must come to an agreement regarding the value of their assets before they can determine who gets what. Putting a value on your hard work can be next to impossible. If you have spent your entire marriage building a business, investing your blood, sweat, and tears, you do not want to undervalue it. It is also important to disclose accurate information regarding income from such ventures. To reach an accurate valuation of your assets, it is important to have a skilled Rancho Cucamonga divorce lawyer in your corner. My firm has a network of real estate experts and financial specialists to help you with property and business valuations so that you and your spouse can reach your goals of independence.
Below are some other assets that are considered community property in California:
- Retirement assets
- Ranch real estate
- Commercial properties
- Tax refunds
There are also things that can complicate the valuation of assets process. Such items include liquidations, taxes, spousal support, child support, custody, and prenuptial agreements. I can help you make sense of these situations as well.
