Property Settlements in Corona Divorce

What marital property do I get to keep?

Looking for a lawyer for property settlement in Corona? At the Law Offices of John Joseph Buckey, Jr. & Associates, we understand the importance of keeping your hard-earned property. We understand that divorce is stressful and that the last thing you want to do is lose your home, your car, your retirement fund and other assets you have worked hard for.

When you ask us what property you get to keep, we will reply by asking you what property you want to keep. With your answer to that in mind, we will carefully design a plan to achieve your marital property division goals. Our Corona divorce lawyers work hard to protect your interests and well-being.

How is marital property division determined?

Before answering this question, it is important to note that marital assets aren't the only things divided. Marital debt needs to be divided as well. This is critical to keep in mind when building a plan.

In the eyes of the court, all of your property falls into two categories: community property and separate property.

  • Community property is all of the property that was obtained during the marriage. This is property that has to be divided.
  • Separate property is all of the property that was obtained prior to the marriage or during the marriage through certain circumstances, such as inheritance. This is property that you get to keep.

Our first step will be to determine which property falls into which category.

Helping You Keep What is Yours

After we have determined what separate property is yours to keep from the outset, we will carefully look at community property.

There are a variety of ways to handle marital property division. In many situations, it can be divided amicably by assigning dollar values to each piece of property and working with your spouse to split it up fairly.

Of course, divorce is not always an amicable matter. Our attorneys know how to pursue fair marital property division in the courtroom. We know how to put our experience to work for you.
