Protecting What's Rightfully Yours In Divorce

Marital Property Division

Division of marital property is a key issue in all divorce cases. For complex property issues to division of your personal property, mediation and collaborative law practice allow you to find creative solutions to property division and create an equitable win-win situation for everyone.

The Law Office of Tammara S. Bloom in Campbell provides experienced legal counsel regarding the division of marital property and all other issues that must be addressed in divorce. The firm represents clients in greater San Jose and throughout the Bay Area.

Keep Control Of Property Division Decisions

Handing over decisions about property division to a family law judge can be costly. In addition, the court is very limited in how it can divide marital property.

With the assistance of a mediator or collaborative attorney, you are not restricted and can agree to divide marital property in a way that makes sense for you and your family. These privately negotiated property division agreements will automatically be approved by the court. When necessary, we will utilize neutral experts, such as appraisers, retirement specialists, actuaries, certified financial planners and CPAs who specialize in marital asset division for mediation and collaborative law cases.

Working together, we will find ways to maximize the assets that you keep and minimize the tax consequences.

Financial Disclosures

In divorce proceedings, California law requires the parties to exchange full and complete financial disclosures regarding their income, expenses, assets and debts. All marital assets and debts are subject to division, including:

  • Real property
  • Personal property, such as vehicles, collectibles, jewelry, household furniture and furnishings
  • Financial accounts
  • Retirement assets
  • Businesses
  • Insurance
  • Stocks and investments
  • Employment benefits such as stock options, restricted stock, deferred compensation, 401(k) and pension plans
  • Tax arrears, losses and credits
  • Mortgages
  • Loans
  • Credit card debt

In mediation and collaborative law cases, the parties both agree to fully disclose and openly share all facts and information about their marital property. Once this has occurred, the parties can negotiate, problem-solve and develop a custom solution to maximize their joint resources so they can provide for themselves and any children.
