Dividing art in a complex divorce

Between the two of you, you've collected thousands of dollars of artwork. Maybe one of you has made art yourself, and today, while faced with divorce, you need to know how to divide those assets.

In terms of property division at divorce, art is an asset, and as such, it falls under the same rules as other kinds of community or separate property. If you had the asset before your marriage, it may be treated as separate property. If you collected the art during your marriage, it's likely categorized as community property, the value of which is subject to division in a California divorce.
