It is common for a couple to determine the division of property themselves. However, if they cannot decide, it is left to the judge. At the time of divorce, community property generally gets divided equally and each spouse keeps his or her own separate property. This is called equitable distribution.
This does not always mean a physical division however. The court might allocate each spouse a percentage of the total value of the property. Each spouse gets assets, debts and personal property adding up to their percentage.
