Kushesh v. Kushesh-Kaviani
Cal.App. 4th Dist., Div. 3 (G054936) 9/21/18
The court held that an interspousal transfer grant deed to the wife as her sole and separate property met the requirements for a transmutation of the character of marital property under Family Code Section 852. However, the case was remanded to the trial court to determine whether the transmutation should nevertheless be deemed ineffective under Family Code Section 721 if the wife gained an unfair advantage over the husband.
