Is CA a Community Property State?

California is a community property state. In other words, the property division laws for a divorce are controlled by community property principals.

  • Community property - Under the community property system, any income earned by either spouse through his or her labor is considered community property and it belongs to both spouses in equal shares.
  • Separate property - However, any property received before marriage or property received during the marriage by means of gift, will or inheritance is not considered community property and it belongs to the spouse who received the gift or inherited the property.

How Are Debts & Assets Divided in a Divorce?

In the event of a divorce, any debts, such as these are considered community property:

  • Credit cards
  • Mortgages
  • Debts arising out of medical bills of one or both spouses
  • School loans
  • Retirement accounts
  • Benefits

The community property system is seemingly simple, but it can get fairly complicated when you have educational loans or retirement plans. The property division can also be very complicated if one spouse owned something before marriage, but it was then brought into the marriage and used or developed by both spouses.

Is California a 50/50 State When it Comes to Divorce?

In general, the state of California aims to fairly divide property between both parties in a divorce. However, this does not mean that you will automatically receive exactly half of everything you own together. For example, you can't split a house in two, so you and your attorney may decide that you're will to allow your spouse to take the house in exchange for something else of equal or similar value that you both own. Additionally, you and your spouse may decide that you would rather sell the home and split the money between the two of you.
