Marital property in Placer County is any property that spouses acquire, separately or together, while married. In California, marital property is also called “community property,” and it can include things like wages, real estate, cars, financial accounts and investments, cryptocurrencies, business interests, and cash. Community property must be divided during a divorce, regardless of whose name is on the deed or title or who earned the money used to buy the asset. However, some property a person comes into possession of while married might be considered non-marital, such as inheritances and gifts.
