Both California and Nevada, like most of the western United States are community property states, California has some exceptions. California compels an equal division of community property. Nevada on the other hand favours an equal division of community property, but will allow for an unequal division if the appropriate legal standards are met. That is therefore referred to an equitable division state. So, I answer your question in terms of equitable division rather than equitable versus community property.
