California is a community property state, which means that each spouse will be awarded half of the marital assets and half of the marital debt. California’s rules of property division are less flexible than the laws in many other states. Still, an experienced and creative divorce attorney can find room for negotiation and strategic financial planning.

For instance, if you used inheritance money to put your spouse through graduate school or to remodel your shared home, the inheritance has become commingled with marital property, losing its separate property designation.
