Transferring Title to Property During Marriage
Identifying and Characterizing Marital Property
California law presumes that all property obtained through the efforts of either party during marriage is community property. However simple that may seem, its application can be complex. Title issues regarding property transfers during marriage can become very complicated. During the divorce process, it is necessary to unravel these interrelated property title and family law issues.
I am Michael A. Gardner, an attorney with more than 20 years experience in complex property division matters. I use this experience to protect my clients' rights during their marriages and during the divorce process.

Using a Postnuptial Agreement to Protect Your Rights
The use of a postnuptial agreement can transmute property from separate to community and from community to separate. However, such agreements must very carefully drafted. The advice and services of an experienced attorney are essential in these matters. Postnuptial agreements can cover real property as well as pensions and deferred compensation. I have a thorough understanding of these complex property issues.

Get the Advice of an Attorney
Acting to prevent trouble is always better than having to deal with a problem after it emerges. Before you transfer real estate or change a property title during marriage, you should consult with an attorney. A simple quit claim deed may be enough to protect yourself, though your case may require significantly more effort. I can advise you in these and other related matters.
