Getting A Fair Marital Property Settlement In California

If you are involved in a divorce in California, you want an experienced lawyer to help protect your rights with respect to marital debts and assets. California’s community property laws can be confusing. Trying to get a fair distribution of property without effective legal counsel may be difficult or impossible.

At Butler, Thiessen & Metzinger, Inc. & Associates, Inc., we have aggressively protected the rights of men and women throughout the Central Valley in California since 1986, concentrating our practice exclusively on family law for more than 30 years. We believe in educating our clients, carefully explaining the law and the process, as well as your rights and options, so that you always have realistic expectations. Our primary goal is always to resolve your disputes. Our lawyers work with you to find creative ways to settle your differences.

We offer a confidential consultation to individuals involved in family law disputes. Call us at 209-390-8829 to arrange a meeting with one of our experienced attorneys.

Protecting Your Rights And Assets

We have a comprehensive understanding of California’s community property laws and know how to help you determine which assets are community property and which assets are separate property (such as gifts, inheritance or property brought into the marriage). We will work with you to prepare a complete schedule of all obligations and assets, establish when the assets were obtained and what the value of each asset is. If necessary, we will work with other professionals, including forensic accountants and financial planners, to obtain fair valuations on all property.

We have considerable experience in divorce cases involving the ownership of businesses and other complex property issues. We will work tirelessly to protect your rights and interests.
