Answering Your Complex Property Questions
- Does your divorce involve large assets and complicated financial issues such as a family-owned business, stock options, retirement savings or a disagreement over community property?
- Are you concerned that your spouse may be hiding assets or property from you?
If your answer is yes to either of these questions, please contact the experienced California attorneys at The Law Offices of Jonathan D. Larose, APC, today.
“Property belonging equally to each spouse is all property (homes, cars, furniture and money) accumulated from the date of marriage to, in most cases, the date a person moves out. This is the general rule subject to some exceptions. It does not matter what state or country you were married in. In California, this is the rule regarding community property and property division.” — Jonathan D. Larose, Attorney, M.B.A.
