Property division during a divorce involves many concerns that may not be obvious. While many California residents may first think of the house or luxury car first and foremost, there are smaller assets to consider as well. Besides just the less obvious financial considerations -- retirement options, investments and the like -- there are also assets that may not hold monetary value, but are of great sentimental value to divorcees. Oftentimes, these assets need to be fought for just as vigorously as some of the larger assets.
Investment and bank accounts are often overlooked in property division. They are, in some cases, pushed aside by the houses, cars and assets with sentimental attachments. True, not everything in divorce amounts to money -- sentimental value is also important. But in ensuring that a divorcee fights for what he or she is entitled to, it is imperative to consider the less obvious assets. By doing so, California divorcees may be able to reach a fair and equal property division settlement.
