    White Papers

  • The law and practice of litigating Marvin claims in a less-married millennium (2020) - The future is unmarried but entangled – fewer couples are getting married and more unmarried couples acquire property, pursue business, help and support each other and pool assets and efforts to create often-complex, financially-intertwined lives.  California’s elaborate Family Code and case law determine property rights between married persons based on community property.  But what happens when unmarried couples make financial deals during their relationship?  In a less-married millennium, disputes between unmarried partners are more common than ever and may arise during their lifetimes or upon a partner’s death.  This is an increasingly important, ascendant area of California civil and probate litigation.
