Wife wants selling of assets to settle complex property division

Most of the time, a divorce can be an unsettling experience for the partners involved. However, there are rare situations that are so complicated that even property division can be more difficult to settle. While California is a community property state, not every state has laws that dictate this aspect as clearly.

There is an ongoing divorce case in another state that has many layers to it. The husband in the case is also facing several charges in three different courts, including contempt in the divorce from his wife of almost 44 years. Her attorneys have claimed that she has faced threats from her husband over how the case should be settled. The couple purportedly has property holdings estimated to be worth several million dollars. However, there is also an ongoing bankruptcy case that is expected to have a direct impact on the property division aspect of the divorce.

The wife in this case has expressed her desire for the divorce to be granted as soon as possible due to the concern for her safety. The attorneys have even suggested that the court grant a bifurcated divorce. Such a divorce allows for the dissolution to be granted before the property division is settled. The judge, however, has expressed her disinclination to make such a decision. The wife has proffered the idea that the bankruptcy proceed and that she and her husband split any remaining assets, with her receiving an additional amount to cover her costs.

The husband is also facing charges relating to his amassing a large cache of firearms, thus the wife's concern for her safety. The judge has pressed a mediation to try to resolve the divorce. While this case is highly unusual, every divorce has its complications, including some aspects of property division. California residents may elect to consult a family law attorney in order to settle these matters as quickly and painlessly as possible.
