Divorce Laws in California

Division of Property

For a divorce in Los Angeles, it is important to remember that California is a community property state. This means that all marital property would need to be equally divided between the two parties concerned in a divorce. These include both assets and debts incurred by both parties for the duration of their marriage. The division of property is usually done following these steps:

  • First, we help determine if a property or debt is to be considered individual or marital
  • We then assess the marital property and agree on a concrete value
  • Finally, we help you decide how exactly to divide the property

Child Custody

A divorce can affect children in different ways. No matter how the divorce proceedings go, it is always important to look after the best interests of the children. Countless important factors can come into the picture when deciding matters of child custody, including the wishes of the child (if the child is over the age of 12), which parent is more likely to take better care of the child, and previous histories of drug use or domestic violence.

Matters of joint or sole custody would need to be decided along with visitation rights. The roles and responsibilities of each parent would need to be clearly stated. We can help you navigate these complex factors and come up with a meaningful approach to child custody.

Hiring a Divorce Lawyer

In most cases, there will be differences of opinion within the divorcing parties regarding significant issues that require resolution. A smooth, uncontested divorce might not always be possible and you would need to be prepared for all possible outcomes.
