Family Law Glossary: Non-marital property

Experienced Roseville Lawyers

In Placer County and throughout California, non-marital property is also called “separate property” in California. Family Code § 770 identifies separate property as anything you owned before marriage, such as a house you bought while single or a retirement account from a job before you were married. Non-marital property also includes inheritances or devises and any gifts received while married (except a gift by your spouse). If your separate property earned profits or rents while you were married, they should be considered non-marital as well. Non-marital property is not subject to division during divorce, and you should be able to walk away with all your separate property.
