Property and Debt Division is part of Divorce or Legal Separation. The process of determining what is community property accumulated during a marriage can include more than just homes or furniture. It can include: Stock options and portfolios, Retirement plans, IRS’s, and Keogh accounts, Art and antiques, Summer Homes, Commercial Real Property, Vehicles of any kind, Bank Accounts to name just a few.

One of the complicated parts of Property Division and Characterization involves the legal issues of “commingling and transmutation of property”.
Commingling of Property is when separate property and community property is so mixed together it can’t be traced apart.

Transmutation of property is when separate property changes to community property or vice versa.

The Laws governing Property Division and Characterization are changing constantly. Our Attorneys, Staff and Financial Experts have thorough up-to-date knowledge and experience to make sure that your property is divided fairly and that you get what you are entitled to.

Professional and Skilled. Great Law Office! Mr. BJ Fadem is a knowledgeable and skilled attorney with great experience. Thank you!

Mr Fadem is extremely knowledgeable of the laws. Felt he was very in tuned to my needs and fought those. Would definitely would use again. HIGHLY RECOMMEND


I have worked with Mr. Fadem on many occasions and he is as intelligent, professional, and dedicated as they come. His knowledge of family law is outstanding and I refer him to anyone who needs a specialized and highly skilled family law attorney.


The reason I return time and time again is knowledgeable employees and the respect I am treated with. I also think that the noncondensending matter in which I was treated was a prime factor.
