Experienced Property Division Lawyer in Modesto
California Asset Distribution Attorney
California is a community property state. When a marriage breaks up, all assets acquired during the marriage must be divided evenly. This concept also applies to debts incurred during the time the couple was together — debts are allocated the same way assets are.
It is important to try to resolve conflicts over property distribution amicably if at all possible. Otherwise a judge may do it in a manner that works for neither party. Contact Thomas Hogan for experienced, cost-effective legal counsel.
Call (209) 214-6600 to arrange a free fifteen-minute initial consultation with Mr. Hogan to discuss any matter related to property division and asset distribution under California’s community property laws.
