Community property is property acquired by the spouses during the marriage. Generally, the law presumes that any property purchased or obtained by either spouse during the marriage is community property. Community property is not just land or buildings. It includes all kinds of property, such as money (all forms-cash, bank accounts, investment accounts), jewelry, home furnishings, automobiles, boats, stock options and the wages or earnings of either spouse during the marriage. Even retirement plans and pensions can be part of the community property estate.
