Petaluma Property Distribution Attorney

Skilled Property Distribution Attorney Guiding Petaluma & Sonoma County Families Through Divorce

Divorce means dividing everything you and your partner share, including your assets and property. California is a community property state, which means that all assets acquired during marriage are considered shared property—with a few exceptions for things like personal gifts. However, although the total value of assets must be split evenly, there is still some room to try to influence exactly which assets go to which party.

Property Valuation & Classification

Before property can be divided, you are required to assess and disclose all your assets to all parties involved. There are major legal consequences for withholding information during this stage, but that doesn’t mean that people won’t try. Attorney Jeffrey Zimmerman has the experience to protect your interests and ensure that your partner acts in accordance with the law.

Business Valuation & Separation

If you and your partner own a business together, things are probably going to get complicated. Even if one of you owns shares of a business separately from the other party, those shares are still likely considered marital property and will need to be included in the property distribution process. Zimmerman Law Offices will help you find a solution that works for you and your business interests.

Debt Responsibility

Wouldn’t it be great if shared debts just went away following a divorce? Unfortunately, they don’t—any debts you or your partner had will remain after your divorce. If you’re losing shared income or are going through other financial hardship, these debts can seem especially daunting. We can help you plan your debt to find a manageable plan that let’s you achieve your goals for the future.
