When Property Division Involved High-Dollar Assets

Marital property in California includes all assets you and your spouse have had and worked for from the day of your marriage until the dates of separation. If one or both of you operated businesses during your marriage, valuation of those business assets will be part of the property division process.

High-value assets may include:

  • Household goods
  • Unusual collectibles such as art, guns or jewelry
  • Real estate
  • The marital home and other property in the family, such as recreational property or a second home
  • A time-share
  • Investment properties
  • Business assets
  • Bank accounts
  • Stocks and bonds
  • Life insurance assets
  • Retirement assets such as brokerage accounts and pensions
  • Deferred financial benefits such as executive bonuses scheduled for far in the future
