Cyber technology provides new tools for finding hidden assets

When a couple has decided to end their marriage, one or both spouses may try to attempt to hide assets from the other spouse. For example, a person facing a divorce may try to hide marital assets from California's community property laws by creating a secret bank account or stock market account. Recent advances in computer technology have greatly increased the difficulty of successfully hiding assets that must be disclosed during the property division process.

Enforcing child support orders in California

More than one divorced parent in Sacramento has faced the unhappy prospect of collecting child support from an ex-spouse who refuses to pay or, even worse, has moved to another state. Fortunately, California state law provides a number of effective remedies that can be used if a parent tries to avoid the consequences of the divorce decree.

Using appraisals to value real property in a California divorce

Even though California is a community property state, dividing assets in a divorce can prove to be a contentious problem. If a couple has acquired significant amounts of real property during their marriage, each of them is entitled to 50% of the value of the property. Liquidating the holdings can provide a simple method of arriving at a 50/50 division, but in many cases, some or all of the holdings cannot be sold without a significant loss in value. In such cases, an appraisal of the value of real property by a qualified appraiser can aid the process of property division.
