The Property Division Process

Both California and Nevada are known as community property states. This means that all property and debts acquired during a marriage (except inheritances and certain gifts) will be split 50-50. The property you brought into the marriage is called separate property and belongs to you alone.

Our attorneys have a comprehensive understanding of the property division process and how to distinguish between separate property and community property. We will work hard to protect your rights and help you obtain all of the property you are entitled to under the law.

In most cases, we have found that negotiation and mediation provide an economical means of resolving disputes over the division of community property and debts. However, we are experienced litigators, and if necessary, we will vigorously represent you in court.

What Will Happen To The House?

Your home is an important financial investment. It could also be a major emotional investment that embodies your dreams and hopes for the future.

What will happen to your house after your divorce? Will your spouse get it? If you get your house as part of the divorce settlement, will you be able to afford the mortgage, utilities, taxes and maintenance costs?

These are questions that require careful consideration. When advising and representing you, our firm will review your financial situation, your income and other factors affecting the ownership of your home. Watkins & Letofsky, LLP, has creative solutions that may enable you to keep your home. On the other hand, you may be better off letting your spouse keep the home, or selling it. We will lay out the facts, explain your options and help you make the right decision.
