Property division, also known as equitable distribution, is the way by which California divides property between spouses after marriage dissolution. Though mediation is an option, when a couple decides not to mediate the state has to decide how to split the marital assets, and has laws that govern this process.
California is considered to be a community property state. In California, the courts will allow a divorcing couple come to their own terms regarding property division, as long as it is considered to be fair and reasonable to both parties.
