When Does Separate Property Become Community Property in California?
Property division is an essential aspect of divorce. In California, property is divided according to community property law. Any marital or community property must be split between spouses. There is a division between what is separate and what is community property, but there are situations where separate assets can become community assets. Because of this, property division can get legally confusing, and spouses can have disagreements about the classification of assets. It’s essential to understand how this may happen when separating property.
