There are some divorce cases that are more complex than others. Some involve factors such as alimony, child custody, child support and more. If you own trusts, retirement accounts and other high-value assets, your divorce could be complicated and require a skilled hand to guarantee that you're as protected as possible.
While hiding assets during a divorce is illegal, there's always a sneaky spouse out there that thinks that they won't get caught. If they are really good at their game, then they could rob you of access to assets you'd otherwise be entitled to when you divorce.
When it comes to how marital assets are split up, it's important to know that California is a community property state. This means that anything that a couple acquires during a marriage is subject to being split 50-50 between the two if they divorce.
