Asset Division

If you are going through a divorce, you are probably concerned about the distribution of your property.  In California, property acquired during marriage is considered community property, and should be divided between spouses accordingly.  Factors such as the increase in value or real estate and retirement accounts will also be included, with the exception of gifts and inheritances.

In a high net worth divorce which involves complex property division, it is critical that the assets and property are thoroughly evaluated to ensure an equitable division of property.  At the Saghera Law Group, we work with leading experts in economics, forensic accounting, business valuation and other fields to ensure that your case is handled properly.  We handle a wide range of complex property division matters, including those involving:

  • Business valuations
  • Division of corporate and/or partnership assets
  • Ownership of residential and commercial real estate
  • Stock options
  • Inheritance
  • Taxation issues
  • Division of pensions
  • Division of IRAs, 401(k)s and other retirement accounts
  • Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDROs)

Family court judges are required to distribute marital assets between spouses, including property acquired by either or both spouses during the marriage.  What constitutes a fair division of property is largely up the judge’s discretion, and subject to a list of legal issues the judge must consider.
