A California Divorce, when it comes down to it’s basic elements, is mostly about dividing assets, property, and debts. In some cases, the financial aspects of a divorce are pretty simple: the home, cars, financial accounts, credit cards, etc. Furniture and similar items usually go to one spouse or the other without much argument.
However, for couples with complex financial dynamics, the process can be much more convoluted. Even in rare cordial California divorces, some assets will be difficult to divide. In addition to the aforementioned basics, there might be stock options, closely held businesses or professional practices, retirement and insurance plans, assets held in various types of trusts, numerous accounts and assets in different states, and other like complicated dynamics.
