North Carolina Division Of Assets

North Carolina is an equitable distribution state, which means that the court will divide marital property equitably. Generally, the courts split marital property equally, but there could be compelling reasons to divide the property differently. For instance, if one of the parties has substantial separate property, the children will live with one parent in the marital residence or if one party is disabled, the court could adjust the distribution to reflect those circumstances.

Not all property owned by the couple is marital property. Property that one spouse had before the marriage, gifts and inheritances are all separate property. We help our clients address complex property division matters, including:

  • Dividing a family business during divorce
  • Division of real estate
  • Disagreements about property division
