Dividing your property isn't always going to be easy, especially if you've been married for many years. In California, you'll be bound by community property laws if you go to court to divide your property unless you have a pre- or post-nuptial agreement in place that dictates how you'll divide your property.
It is important for people to be clear on the fact that California's marital property laws require a 50-50 split upon divorce. All marital property is divided equally unless you can agree on a different arrangement. For example, if you earn less than your spouse, they might agree to split your assets 70-30 or 60-40.
