Orange County Property Division Lawyers

Dividing Complex Marital Assets in a Divorce

Dividing martial assets and debt is one of the most contentious matters in a divorce. It can be especially troubling when complex investments, business assets, real estate properties, retirement accounts, and other complex assets are involved. The outcome of your property settlement agreement can affect your finances throughout your life, so it is important that you make smart decisions during this process.

Divorce Property Characterization & Division

At Brown & Charbonneau, LLP, we offer experienced legal counsel to people with complex and intermingled assets during a divorce. We are determined to reach a solution that is fair and reflects our clients’ financial interests.

Distribution of Property

In California, community property is generally divided equally between both spouses. There are several factors to consider when working out an agreement:

  • How and when can you obtain access to retirement accounts and pensions?
  • What will happen to your business during a divorce?
  • Can you afford to maintain the assets — such as pay a mortgage, for example?

We are experienced Orange County property division attorneys who can answer your questions and help you understand the implications of your decisions.

Uncovering Hidden Assets

When facing a property settlement case, we want to make sure all the assets are identified so they can be considered in the division agreement. This requires proper valuation of a business, if there is one, as well as uncovering hidden bank accounts, investments and other assets. To this end, we often work with accountants and other financial experts who have the knowledge and resources to locate all the assets. We strive to move through this process quickly and amicably; but as experienced litigators, we are prepared to go to trial, if necessary, to obtain a favorable property division agreement.
