Assets

Below are the most common assets involved in divorces. You need to decide who will be keeping what in the divorce. It’s important to note that anything that you acquired after getting married is considered what we call community property and is as much the husband’s as it is the wife’s. Division of all community property is usually split 50/50 by courts. But any asset that either spouse came into the marriage with is considered their separate property and not subject to division.
