What is the division of goods?
When we talk about division of goods we are talking about civil law, which is the branch of law that regulates the relationship between natural and legal persons. These relationships can be of a patrimonial or personal nature.
Specifically, conflicts regarding the division of property can occur in three areas of civil law:
• Real rights: when the rules for the division of a community of goods come into play.
• Marriage law: to establish what will be the matrimonial-economic regime that will govern in the marriage and, in case of divorce or separation, to know how the division of the goods should be made.
• Succession right: when the assets of a person should be divided after his death, whether there is a will or not.
On the one hand, article 392 of our Civil Code defines that “there is a community when ownership of a thing or a right belongs to” pro undivided “to several people”, that is, without differentiated parties. When it is intended to dissolve a community of goods is when the rules of division of goods come into play.
On the other hand, regarding matrimonial law, it is important to know what is the economic-matrimonial regime that governs a marriage, especially in cases of separation, divorce, inheritance or insolvency of one of the spouses. The most common regimes included in our Civil Code are the community of acquisitions and the separation of assets. The first implies that the gains obtained during the marriage will belong to the two spouses equally. However, in the second, each spouse is the exclusive owner of their assets and is free to administer them and dispose of them as they wish.
Finally, the division of assets is also important in inheritance law, which is the set of civil law rules that regulate hereditary succession. This is opened at the time a person dies and ends with the distribution of their assets between their heirs and legatees. When a person dies, it may happen that he has left a will to regulate the division of his property after his death, or it may be that there is no will and we are facing what is known as “intestate succession”.
