Concerned about getting your fair share of assets in a divorce? Let expert Upland CA property rights attorney Torrence L. Howell help.
Divvying up property, debts, and assets is often one of the most challenging aspects of a divorce. Sometimes, one spouse will try to hide assets from the other out of spite or else be overly generous in giving away assets out of guilt. Fortunately, with an experienced Upland CA property rights attorney in your corner, you can avoid these kinds of pitfalls and ensure your assets are divided fairly. Torrence L. Howell makes a particularly good choice for property disputes as his background in business and finance enables him to clearly grasp all the financial minutiae involved in a property rights case and use it to his client’s advantage.
How Are Property Rights Determined?
California is a community property state, meaning each spouse is automatically entitled to half of all assets and property acquired during the marriage. This includes items like:
- Bank accounts
- Stocks &bonds
- Retirement funds
- Real estate
Property acquired by one individual prior to the marriage as well as any income coming from that property remains that person’s separate property in the event of divorce. Spouses are by no means obligated to split their community assets 50-50, if they can reach a different agreement regarding asset division on their own. A property rights attorney in Upland CA can provide you with information to use when negotiating an agreement out of court with your ex, as well as with expert courtroom representation should your negotiations fail.
What About Business Property and Assets?
If you or your ex own a small business, the value of that business will likely be an important factor in any asset division agreement you eventually reach. Having represented both business owners needing to protect the integrity of their operations and spouses needing to tap the value of business assets to ensure their own financial solvency, Torrence L. Howell has a deep understanding of the various legal issues and perspectives involved in dividing business property and assets. His background in business law informs his work as a property rights attorney in Upland CA, making him a shrewd and successful advocate for your rights and interests in these special kinds of cases.
