Property And Asset Division Lawyer

California is a community property state that views a marriage as a team: any property purchased, wealth acquired, or debt accrued during the length of the marriage is shared equally between spouses after a divorce. This seemingly simple directive can be complicated by a number of factors, however: many assets are a mixture of individual and community property, and it is possible to acquire individual debt during the course of a marriage if it isn't incurred for the benefit of the household. A deceitful spouse may even attempt to hide financial assets to save money.

At Dean | Rosen LLP, we have handled numerous highly complex and contentious property and asset division cases, including ones involving professional practices such as architectural firms, dentists' and physicians' offices, designers, franchises, and even law firms. We employ forensic accountants and appraisers to help locate, valuate, and determine the stake in assets that each spouse may have. We can even hire private investigators if a spouse is concerned about suspicious behavior. We also help our clients prevent their individual property interests from being partitioned, and protect them from sharing in their spouses' extramarital debt.
