Property Division

San Diego Property Division Lawyers

A legal separation or divorce can lead to a bitter fight over child custody, child support, and marital property. While property division disputes can arise in most divorce cases, when the dispute involves a significant amount of property, the fight can get even more difficult.

Complex issues usually come up when it’s time to divide the property during divorce settlements, especially when it involves a business, stocks, or a dispute regarding community property classification. You are allowed to retain assets you acquired before marriage or inherited during your marriage as you are entitled to a portion of assets gained during the marriage.

As experienced property division attorneys, we can help discover all the property that should be divided, no matter how well hidden the property might be, and we can help you assert your rights to a portion of that property. Moreover, we can also protect your rights if you feel that particular property is rightfully yours and not subject to division.

If you or your spouse are owners in a business, we can help obtain the most favorable outcome regarding the assets and income generated by that businesses for you.

Stocks and bonds are another complicated issue. If they come from the employer of a spouse, stocks and stock options can be considered income that should be used to determine spousal and child support payments. Attorney Laurence Haines has the experience to help determine the amount of support in these cases and who is entitled to ownership of stocks, bonds and the payment of taxes.
