When a couple chooses to end their marriage, the property that they have collected while together must be fairly distributed between both parties. Any finances, assets, or property that were while the couple was married will be considered "community property" and distributed in a manner that the courts deem appropriate. In most cases, the only pieces of your shared estate that will not be readily divided are gifts.
Distributing property can feel like a frantic land grab in even the most civil uncontested divorces. Trying to keep track of what was yours and yours alone can be extremely difficult without proper records and evidence. Some of the most common assets that are unfairly split due to improper litigation and miscommunication include:
When you are settling matters of property distribution, ensure that you and your lawyer have carefully reviewed any prenuptial or postnuptial agreements. Conditions could swing heavily in your favor due to these documents when brought to the attention of the court.
