You and your husband have been married for over 30 years. During this time, the two of you have acquired a substantial amount of assets, including retirement and investment accounts and multiple properties. Last week your husband asked you for a divorce.
In the midst of the emotional shock, you are aware that there are some serious decisions to make. Fortunately, all of your children are adults and have families of their own, so there will not be any custody issues. However, you are concerned with how the California court will divide the marital property.
