” Untangling Pre – Marital Jointly Owned Property – The Family Code 2650 Solution – How to Apply 2650 and What Are the Tactical Considerations. “

Explore the Myth of a True Joint Tenancy in Family Law: Characterization and Reimbursement Issues Relating to Joint Premarital Acquisitions. Issues arise when a couple purchases property together prior to marriage in joint form and one person contributes more to the acquisition than the other. The non-contributing spouse argues that a true joint tenancy exists and the equity in the house should be equally split without any “2640” rights because the asset was acquired before marriage. Vanessa and Bob pull apart the relevant code sections and explain why this position should not prevail in any family law court.
