Complex Issues in California Family Law - Volume F
Select a format
The authors analyze the inherent right of reimbursement to the marital community when the efforts of one spouse have benefited only that spouse's separate property. The rules are nearly entirely judge-made; for this reason, equitable apportionment has more conflicting approaches than nearly any other fundamental family law area:
• Constructive fraud
• Lender intent doctrine
• Fiduciary duties
• Equitable offset
• Consent—which may eliminate the right to reimbursement
all of which affect the Pereira-Van Camp approaches used to calculate the apportionment once the underlying basis is proven.
