Community property is any property obtained during the marriage. If income was earned during the marriage, any proceeds from the income will be community property. Upon dissolution, equity in a community property asset will be awarded equally to both parties. Separate property is any property obtained before or after the marriage and any property that was received during the marriage as a gift or inheritance. In a divorce, separate property will be awarded to the party who owns the separate property.
