Division of Assets and Debts in Divorce

Rancho Mirage Marital Estate Attorney Barbara E. Kristal

The division of assets and debts is usually essential and the source of most stress during a marital dissolution or divorce. California is well known for being a “community property state” which means all assets acquired during a marriage are part of common property between both spouses. Sometimes determining the true value of community property is usually the most difficult and complicated aspect during a division of properties.

During a divorce or dissolution of marriage you need to have an experienced attorney who understands the subtle nuances to the division of property. Barbara E. Kristal will work with you to protect your assets, rights and peace of mind. Barbara E. Kristal also helps protect you and your credit by focusing on the equal division of debt. When necessary we can call upon forensic certified public accountants (CPA) to analyze and research financial statements and records to ensure that all issues are taken into account fairly.
