Thank you for your question, Tania. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.To answer your question directly, provided all of the funds in this 401K was accumulated and invested while married, then under California community property laws you would be entitled to exactly half of that account. That would extend to any checking and savings accounts or any property you may have obtained while married together, even if titled under one person. Assets that would not be split 50/50 are any assets that were inherited by one person, any property from before marriage, and any property otherwise listed as separate based on prenuptial or postnuptial agreements.Good luck.
