You can’t just walk around the house and say “that’s mine” and expect it to stand up in court without the proper evidence that the object, or objects, are really yours.

Attorney Donald P. Schweitzer is an expert in family law and can help you figure out what you can keep and what you can’t.

Donald says that under California law, anything that is bought between the date of marriage and date of separation is classed as community property. Separate property, meanwhile, is things that are acquired before your marriage or after your separation, or given to you from an inheritance.

All community property will have to be divided equally in divorce proceedings. But separate property can be kept by an individual.

But how you do prove such things, and how can you be sure which is which? Let’s let the attorney tell us a little about it:

So when divorcing parties need to sort out what belongs to who, and who gets what, it is always better to have attorney Donald P. Schweitzer in your corner making sure that everyone follows the law, and everyone gets what they are entitled to.
