Separate & Inherited Property

Protection of Your Financial Interests in a California Divorce

As a community property state, California has established a family law code intended to make property division as straightforward as possible. In reality, however — and especially in times of economic turbulence — many types of disputes can arise.

An equally important thrust of our laws is an emphasis on making sure that each party in a divorce receives their separate (non-marital) property back. If you are concerned about recovering your inherited money, assets you brought into the marriage, or other property you feel is yours alone, contact us now at the Brea-based Law Office of Brenda Lynn McCune.

A Determined Effort to Obtain Your Inherited or Other Separate Property

The heart of this challenge, in most cases, is providing proof that your property is — or once was — separate and yours alone. Even if money or other assets have been "commingled" during the marriage, bringing forth the proper records and documentation can often lead to a positive result in your quest to keep your inheritance or other separate property.
