Property Rights

One of the hard issues that come up in a divorce is the issue of property rights.  When the marriage divides two spouses, the marital property is often not split right down the center line.  Marital property is generally any asset or property that has been purchased or acquired during the course of the marriage.  Many factors go into the decision about who gets what.  The law allows the property to be divided however the husband and wife want, or however the court determines it should be divided if the case goes to court.

Experience Counts

At the Law Offices of Torrence L. Howell, you will find that I have the experience you need to help divide assets and property.  I can answer your questions about whether or not property or assets are considered marital properly and thus divisible.  Property or assets that were yours prior to the marriage are generally not considered to be marital property, although there are some exceptions.

Many people have questions about their property rights when a divorce is in progress, and I can help you find those answers.  I have been practicing Family Law for more than 13 years in the Southern California area and have helped many people work through the process to an equitable division of property.  I always try to work with the other side, but I have the experience you need if it goes into litigation.

Business Property

If you are a business owner and your spouse is trying to gain access to your property through a divorce, I understand how important it is to you to keep your business up and running.  If you are the spouse of a business owner, I understand how important the business assets could be in providing for child care and other financial issues after the divorce.  Having represented both sides of the fence, I understand the legal issues involved and can help you protect your property rights.
