Protect Your Financial Interests - Learn How to Fairly Maximize the Division of Assets and Debts
Under California community property law, assets and debts must be divided equally. As a result, all increases and decreases in values of property, such as the family residence, stock assets, retirement assets and business assets are subject to division.
Likewise, marital debt, including credit card liabilities and various types of loans must also be divided or offset against other assets. Here, it is important to remember that the terms of a divorce Judgment have nothing to do with your contractual obligations to a third party. If your spouse agrees to pay off a credit card and then defaults, the bank can demand payment from you
