Who Gets What In Equitable Distribution?
North Carolina is an equitable distribution state. Property does not undergo a 50-50 division. Rather, it is divided in a fair and equitable manner. To accomplish this, the property must be identified, classified as marital or separate, valued and distributed. Our divorce lawyers have in-depth knowledge about this process and collaborate with professionals such as business valuation experts and forensic accountants whenever necessary. Whether through negotiated settlement agreements or in the courtroom, we advocate for our clients’ property rights in divorce related to:
- Marital home and other real estate property
- Pension benefits
- Retirement assets
- Bank accounts
- Family-owned businesses
- Recreational property
- Credit card debt
We are well-prepared to guide you through this process, safeguard your rights and set you on a solid path for your post-divorce life. This can help you feel peaceful about the decision to divorce and the financial changes that you may be facing.
