Property Settlement in a Divorce

Community Property Attorney

Resolve Property Settlement Disputes in your Divorce

Property settlement disputes are often a major issue in California divorces, turning what could be a peaceful divorce into a contentious battle. However, property settlement attorney Charles M. Green has found that negotiation and mediation leading to Voluntary Settlement are effective ways to resolve property law disputes. He will not hesitate to go to court when necessary if that will provide you a desirable outcome.

The property division process involves determining what is the separate property of each spouse and what is community property, and then assigning a value to it. The characterization of property acquired and income earned during the marriage will need to be inventoried and characterized. The property and income may or may not be community property. Those complexities require the type of experience Charles M. Green provides.

Separation & Valuation Date Disputes

The specific date of separation is a vital component in property division. The actual day the marriage ended can be subjective and often a point of contention between a divorcing couple. The date of separation can determine if property is separate or community and can impact the duration of spousal support. Similarly, the date an asset is valued such as a home valued on the date of trial or another date can have a material effect on your financial recovery from the dissolution process.

Take Control through a ‘Voluntary Settlement’

At our firm, we recognize that arguments can arise over who owns what. Attorney Charles M. Green is a strong believer in the negotiation and mediation process. The division of community propert is an important part of a divorce. The lifetime significance of a property settlement should make one think twice before relinquishing the decision-making process to a caring but overly burdened court system, that will be very expensive and may require many experts to be employed for testimony. If possible, the division of your possessions should be determined between you and your soon to be ex-spouse. Mediation within a skillfully managed “Voluntary Settlement Process” allows for innovative and creative solutions in dividing property to take into account your particular facts and your particular needs.

Green’s approach is to seek a resolution through negotiation and mediation first. Voluntary settlement offers significant advantages over the courtroom:

  • Mediation allows for innovative and creative solutions that meet the needs of both parties.
  • Settlement is a less costly and time-consuming process than a trial.
  • Negotiation is more likely to preserve an amicable relationship with the other party after the divorce, which can be important with issues such as child custody and visitation.

While voluntary settlement offers these advantages, Family Law Attorney Charles M.  Green can represent your community property case effectively in the courtroom should the other party be unwilling to compromise reasonably.
