The financial assets and debts of a marriage are divided in a California divorce as community property. There are a number of forms that you will be filing and there are judgments that are set in place by the courts designating who owns what. To insure that your rights are protected and that you are not taken advantage of by your spouse, call the law offices of Michael J. Smith for a free consultation. It is important to remember that until a judge signs of on your property division agreement and issues a final order (judgment), the community property and debts still belong to you and your spouse and do not become separate even if you have already agreed on how to them divide them yourselves.

You and your spouse will fill out a Schedule of Assets and Debts (Form FL-142) in which each of you declare all assets and debts, including community and separate property. You then will attempt to agree and divide the assets and debts. If you are unable to do so amicable, we will be able to help you resolve your issues at our law office in Ventura.

Pension Plan Benefits and Retirement Plans

You and your spouse may need fill out a a Pension Benefits – Attachment to Judgment (Form FL-348). You may need to fill out a Retirement Plan Joinder – Information Sheet (Form FL-318-Info).

Our law office is here to guide you through the process of divorce so that all your rights are protected, you receive your equitable share of community property and when you receive the Final Judgment Divorce Certificate you have given yourself the best chance of receiving your monies without having to go to court to collect.
