Dividing Your California Marital Estate in the Bay Area

In the simplest California divorces, couples equally divide their modest assets and move on with their lives. In many dissolutions, the math and the legalities of community property are infinitely more complicated. Dividing the estate down the middle might be impractical, and the complexities of certain estates may warrant more creative solutions. There could be significant disagreement about the value of certain assets, or whether a community property interest even exists. This is when an experienced San Francisco divorce lawyer can be valuable.

Since estates differ, working with a law firm that can knowledgeably address diverse points of law within a broader perspective is important.

Schoenberg Family Law Group, P.C., helps clients establish priorities, choose their battles, and secure their fair share of the estate, so they will emerge from the divorce in the most beneficial financial position.

We are an established team of San Francisco family lawyers, representing individuals throughout the Bay Area. Schedule a consultation at 415.834.1120.

“Debra was a true advocate for me as I was figuring out to how to proceed, what I needed, wanted, and deserved after 28 years of marriage. She listened carefully, was respectful of my wishes to keep legal fees to a minimum, always answered calls promptly, was a rock when I was confused and/or emotional. She was able to steer me through a difficult time always maintaining a positive upbeat attitude, a great sense of humor, and always assuring me of a good outcome. She is simply the best at what she does. The associates who work with her are terrific as well. It is a brilliant team of people to have on your side.”
