California is a Community Property state. In a divorce, all separate property remains the property of one spouse, and community property is divided equally. Unfortunately, that goal is often not the reality.
If you feel that your voice is getting lost in property division discussions, and you will not be able to reach a fair settlement, especially with ownership of significant assets and real estate, you will find the attention and advocacy you need at the Law Office of Christina Sherman in San Rafael.
In addition to a Law Degree, Attorney Christina Sherman holds a Masters of Laws in Taxation.

Christina is an experienced family law attorney who can help you to retain your fair share of your financial investment in your marriage and move on with your life.

Christina is a skilled negotiator for your objectives at all times, and a forceful litigator in court when she needs to be. She will represent your credible claims to full or partial ownership of community property and will help you reach a fair settlement with:
- Real estate — primary and secondary residences, vacation and retirement homes, farms and ranches, rental property and undeveloped land
- Businesses — a business owned by one (or both) spouses is subject to accurate valuation before it is divided
- Motor vehicles, watercraft and aircraft
- Retirement and deferred income, stocks, stock options, bank accounts and bonds
- Memberships, collectibles, inheritances and family heirlooms
- Tracings – a mixed asset requires tracing to determine the amount of separate property
