THURMAN'S CALIFORNIA DIVORCE TIPS -
FAMILY CODE SECTION 752
Did you know that not only is the idea that the separate property of married
persons is secured by statute, but it is also enshrined as Section 21
of the California State Constitution? Section 21 states "Property
owned before marriage or acquired during marriage by gift, will, or inheritance
is separate property." There is no similar reference to community
property in our Constitution. See also
Family Code section 770.
