Protecting Your Future
The division of assets and debts in divorce is often a difficult and highly contentious process. Property division laws can be complex, and certain complicating factors may make the process even more difficult. It is important for anyone getting a divorce to speak to an experienced attorney who can explain the legal process, answer questions along the way and seek a cost-effective resolution.
The Law and Mediation Office of Jennifer M. Sullivan offers more than 25 years of experience in divorce and family law matters.

Dividing Assets And Debts In Divorce
In California, community property is subject to division in a divorce. This includes any assets or debts acquired during the duration of the marriage. Conversely, property acquired before the marriage, or gifts or inheritance given specifically to one spouse during the marriage (separate property) is not subject to property division.
Property division can get especially complicated when a family business is owned, when assets acquired before marriage generate additional income during the marriage and when complex tax matters apply. The Law and Mediation Office of Jennifer M. Sullivan is prepared to help you address these and other complicating matters.
