Protecting Your Financial Interests
There is a lot at stake when you are involved in property division negotiations. Knowing what your rights are and obtaining evaluations or appraisals for unique properties or business ownership is critical. The division and sharing of property can shape your financial future.
At Lowenstein Brown, APLC, we have leveraged our knowledge and acumen to obtain fair property division agreements for our clients for over 30 years. We consistently receive favorable results because we are intimately familiar with California’s community property laws and meticulously prepare for negotiations. Our lawyers work together when handling your family law concerns, which helps them identify an effective approach for your situation.
Helping You Receive Your Fair Share
In California, each spouse receives one half of the shared estate, which typically includes:
- The marital home
- Bank accounts, including savings and checking accounts
Although this process may seem relatively straightforward, other factors can affect property division negotiations. Pre- and postnuptial agreements may contain clauses dictating the terms of a property division agreement.
In addition, other complex or high-value assets may be divided differently. These assets include:
- Retirement accounts and military pensions
- Stocks and investment portfolios
- Business assets and property
- High-value collections, including art, vehicle and jewelry collections
- Intellectual property
When you retain us, we will review your financial statements and title to determine which property or assets are shared and which are separate. With assistance from accountants and valuation experts, we will assess a fair market value for these assets, using this information to negotiate for resolution. If you believe that your spouse is hiding assets, we can take the steps necessary to investigate this further and present the evidence found to the court.
