When you and your spouse pursue a divorce, one of the biggest issues that needs to be settled is asset and property division. This can be a trying and difficult process, especially if you and your spouse are not on friendly terms.

An attorney will represent you in legal proceedings including mediation or litigation in order to fight for your fair share of the community property.
California is a "community property" state, which means that any assets that were gained during the life of the marriage (after the wedding, and before the physical separation) are considered to be community. All community properties and assets will be divided as equally and fairly as possible. An attorney will help ensure that your spouse is not hiding any assets or covering up any property that may be considered "community" in the hopes of getting a better deal out of the settlement.
