Property Division

Carlsbad Property Division Attorney

Over time, spouses acquire many assets and shared items including houses, cars, bank accounts, and other valuables. When the marriage comes to an end, however, the division of these assets can make for some difficulties for all parties involved. Depending on the financial situation of the couple, property division can quickly escalate into one of the most complicated processes during the divorce. Thankfully, the team of divorce and family law attorneys at McKinnon Law Firm can oversee property division in a fair and respectful manner.

While property division should always be fair and equitable, it is ultimately up to the judge and individuals involved, to determine how fair each person’s share truly is. There are many factors that can go into a property division case including the length of the marriage, which items are shared marital assets, and the income contribution of each spouse. We will examine your situation closely to provide you with honest counsel regarding the outcome of your case.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • How is spousal support calculated?
    There is no specific formula or calculation to determine permanent spousal support. In awarding permanent spousal support, the Court will consider the respective incomes of the parties, the earning ability of the supported spouse, the standard of living during the marriage, as well as other factors set forth in Family Code Section 4320.
  • Do I have to pay child support if we have equal time with our children?

    It depends. In California, child support is calculated by a statewide guideline formula. The factors considered in this formula include the parties’ respective incomes, the timeshare of the children, health insurance deductions, required union dues and retirement, as well as other factors. If the parties have equal parenting time with the children, but one party earns more income, then the higher earning parent may have to pay child support. Whether a parent will have to pay child support and the amount depends on the particular circumstances in each case.
  • What is Family Court Services Mediation?
    Family Court Services Mediation is child recommending counseling imposed by the Court when custody issues cannot be resolved by the parents informally. Both parties are required to attend this mediation without their attorneys. A mediator who works for the Court will meet with both parties to assist them in reaching agreements regarding custody and a child sharing plan. If the parties cannot agree to custody and parenting during FCS mediation, then the mediator will issue a report to the Court making recommendations as to what the custody and parenting arrangement should be for the children.
