Is Property Split 50/50 in a California Divorce?
No, the property is not always split 50/50 in a California divorce. In California, the property is divided equitably, meaning the court will equitably divide the property to both spouses.
The court will consider all of the relevant factors in each case, including the length of the marriage, each spouse's income, the needs of any children, and the contributions of each spouse to the marriage.
If the spouses cannot agree on a property division, the court will decide based on what it believes is fair. However, the Los Angeles County court will consider all relevant factors in each divorce case and will not automatically award each spouse 50% of the property.
Can One Spouse Refuse Divorce in California?
In California, a spouse's refusal to sign divorce papers will not stop the divorce process. The courts will grant a divorce petition regardless of whether the spouse wants a divorce. The divorce may be contested rather than uncontested.
Divorces Involving Children
Our Woodland Hills divorce lawyers understand that divorces often involve much more than the division of property. For those who have children, there are concerns over custody and visitation rights, as well as child support. Our divorce attorneys are here to help you protect what is most important to you. Whether you are fighting for custody over your child or seeking to obtain a fair child support settlement, we can help you obtain an outcome that is in the best interest of you and your child.
