2556.  In a proceeding for dissolution of marriage, for nullity of
marriage, or for legal separation of the parties, the court has
continuing jurisdiction to award community estate assets or community
estate liabilities to the parties that have not been previously
adjudicated by a judgment in the proceeding. A party may file a
postjudgment motion or order to show cause in the proceeding in order
to obtain adjudication of any community estate asset or liability
omitted or not adjudicated by the judgment. In these cases, the court
shall equally divide the omitted or unadjudicated community estate
asset or liability, unless the court finds upon good cause shown that
the interests of justice require an unequal division of the asset or
liability.
