SAN DIEGO MARITAL PROPERTY DIVISION LAWYERS
Carlsbad Property Settlement Attorneys
In California, family law courts seek an equitable distribution of marital property at the time of final judgment. The law intends for each party to come away with half of the marital assets. The process involved in dividing assets properly can be remarkably complicated and stressful.
At the Law Offices of Daniel Grunbaum, we have extensive experience in high-asset, complex property division cases. We can help you negotiate a property settlement that serves your interests and is acceptable to the court. To schedule a phone consultation with an experienced La Mesa marital property division attorney, call 619-469-9477 or contact us by e-mail.
Understanding Community Property in California
There are many issues that must be resolved to properly ensure that your property settlement is fair. Business and real estate holdings, including both California and out of state interests, must be accounted for, characterized and an accurate value established.
All property should be appraised as close to the time of final settlement or judgment as possible. To determine the value of a real property, a family business, a closely held corporation, a partnership interest or other community assets, we often use experts such as real estate appraisers and forensic accountants. Our attorneys will help you understand when you need an outside expert to protect your interests. Our experience in complex cases can save you time and money in reaching the correct result.
Your attorney must be able to work quickly and accurately to preserve your rights to marital property. In many cases, there is not enough liquidity in assets to allow one party to maintain the family residence or business and still reach an equitable distribution. In those cases, we will work with you to find creative solutions to equalize and properly secure your property interests. This may be accomplished by a note secured by deed of trust, a stock pledge or other devices. The proper steps must be taken to ensure that the money is paid, or, if it is not, that you have a legal remedy.
Whenever possible, our lawyers work with the other party and his or her lawyer to reach a successful property settlement without the need for litigation. If litigation is necessary, we are aggressive and knowledgeable trial advocates. To discuss your property settlement concerns in a phone consultation, call 619-469-9477 or contact us online.
