Don’t Let The End Of Your Marriage Anchor You Down

Even the most straightforward divorce in California is not always smooth sailing. Problems often arise related to the division of property and child custody. The results of a divorce case can impact you for years to come. As an experienced Sausalito, California, divorce attorney, Elizabeth Du Par can help you get through your divorce and address the legal issues at stake.

Navigating Divorce Procedures

Every divorce case is different, and the course will often vary. However, the steps to pursuing a divorce in California follow the same basic steps.

California is a no-fault divorce state, this means that the spouses couldn’t get along, and no one must prove wrongdoing on either side of the marriage for a divorce to proceed. Du Par Law can help you from the initial petition and serving of the divorce papers to settlement negotiations and post-judgment issues.

Guiding You Through Choppy Waters

California is a community property state, meaning the goal is to divide marital property in half. Assets and debts spouses acquired during the marriage belong equally to both and are divided equally between them.

Various issues may come up when dividing assets, including:

  • Pensions
  • Retirement plans
  • Real estate
  • Careers
  • Businesses

This requires each spouse to be transparent about the assets accrued during the marriage. In some cases, a spouse will hide their assets and take active steps to conceal money or property to preserve assets that they consider to be their own. With experience in these issues, Elizabeth Du Par can help you navigate the muddy waters of tracing and dividing assets.
