Asset Division: Who Gets What … And Why?
When divorcing in California, the courts may have the discretion to divide any assets, property and debts accrued during the marriage as they see fit. Sometimes, this can seem like a fairly straightforward process, especially when the two parties are on good terms. However, when divorcing, the stakes are high, and even a simple division of assets and debts can become complicated.
