When the possibilities of a marriage cease to exist, there may be no other option left except for getting a divorce. When talking about the most emotionally staggering phases of life, divorce is one of the first ones that come to mind. Sometimes divorce is inevitable, and there is nothing you can do to reduce the damage. It is hard for the divorced couple, and it is hardest for the kids. A divorce not only derails the emotions of a family but it can also completely disrupt their financial condition.

We all know that upon divorce, family court proceeds with the division of assets after identifying and categorizing each of the owned assets into separate, quasi community and community property. What most people forget is that not only the assets but even the debts are subject to division. As a married couple gathers assets over the course of their marriage, they take loans such as mortgage and car loans and credit cards and other debt.

Debt Division upon Divorce

Divorce often comes as a huge blow for families. The husband, wife, as well as the children, may suffer deeply from it and have to endure its difficult aftermath. No matter how much you try, you cannot get rid of what’s to come after a divorce. Besides the unstable emotional state, even your finances suffer. All in all, this tragic event, often simply disrupts your life completely.

Some of the matters that you must deal with during a divorce include child custody, child and spousal support, and asset division. The laws governing the asset division vary state by state. If you are getting a divorce in San Diego, you need to understand the difference between community and separate property, as California is a community property state.
