Understanding different types of property division

There are two forms of property division, In the United States depending upon where you live in. A few states follow "Community Property" laws, meaning that all property is defined as either separate property or community property. Separate property is solely owned by one spouse, and community property is owned equally by both spouses. Most states, such as California follow equitable distribution, meaning that the courts determine who deserves what, depending upon arrangements during the marriage.
