Point Loma, California
Geographically a peninsula, Point Loma is a community that separates San Diego Bay from the Pacific Ocean. On the west side of the peninsula there are sandstone cliffs along the ocean, called the Sunset Cliffs. There are a few distinct neighborhoods in Point Loma. The newest commercial and retail area in Point Loma is found at Liberty Station, site of the former Naval Training Center, which also has residential and educational sections. The Midway district at the northern end of the peninsula is adjacent to the San Diego River and the I-5 and I-8 freeways. It is primarily commercial and industrial with a few small residential developments. The southern one-third of Point Loma is a separate community known as Ocean Beach. Tourists visit the cliffs in the west side of Point Loma for views of the ocean and the sunset. There are also surfing spots below the cliffs, such as Luscombs, Garbage Beach, and New Break.

Doppelt and Forney, APLC, has represented clients from Point Loma in the past. Point Loma is an affluent area of San Diego and this can result in high asset cases which can present unique situations. For example, it is true that all property acquired from date of marriage to date of separation will be divided one half each. This does not mean, however, that 50% of all will be divided equally. For example, a house which was purchased during the marriage is clearly community property. If the house is to be sold or bought out by one spouse or the other, then either spouse is allowed to ask for any reimbursement credits under Family Law Code Section 2640. This requires a tracing but is worth the time, for example, if a $100,000 down payment on a house cane from an inheritance during marriage to one spouse and was not commingled or transmuted. As you can imagine, this can get very complicated and [in some cases] a forensic CPA is required.
