For more than 20 years, we have served the people of the San Jose metro area to value property accurately, uncover hidden assets and make sure that our clients get fair community property agreements.
What Are Some Examples Of Community Property?
California considers community property – also called marital property – any property or assets acquired during a marriage. There are some exceptions, though, such as inheritances. A few common examples of community property include:
- Homes or other real estate
- Automobiles and recreational vehicles
- Jewelry, electronics, furniture and other items
- Business interests
- Bank accounts
- Retirement benefits
- Stock options
Though it may seem straightforward to divide everything equally when dissolving a marriage, the process is anything but. Exes might disagree on the value of certain assets, for example, or disagree on whether a certain asset counts as marital property. The existence of a prenuptial agreement can clarify which assets go to whom, but it can also complicate things if one spouse contests certain assets of the prenup, including, for example, alimony.
