For many people going through a divorce, property division is one of the key issues. Each side wants to retain certain assets, and the two parties must either negotiate an agreement or take the matter to court. Either way, an experienced family law attorney is a necessity.

California is a community property state, meaning that any assets gained during a marriage must be split equally between the parties. Separate property is owned by one spouse or another. Part of a divorce lawyer's job is demonstrating that a particular asset is either separate or community property, depending on the circumstances.
