Protecting Your Rights & Assets in a North Carolina Divorce

Splitting up the marital property in a divorce can be difficult and upsetting. Aside from matters like the family home and other assets, who will get to keep the family dog? What happens to items like family heirlooms, photograph albums, or other sentimental objects? What happens in high net worth divorces when the finances can be complex, involving all types of property, complicated transactions, real estate, stock portfolios, other valuable investments, and unknown tax consequences?

Divorce is never easy but decisions have to be made concerning all the material goods, property, and debts that were acquired during a marriage. This issue can often lead to disputes and bitter adversity between the two parties, requiring the intervention of legal guidance, negotiation, or litigation.

How North Carolina Marital Property Is Divided

If you and your spouse cannot come to an agreement between yourselves or through negotiation, the court will make the decision for you as to how your marital property will be divided. Marital property includes only that property accrued jointly during the marriage. Separate property, such as an inheritance or gift to one of the parties or property that was acquired prior to the marriage or after the separation, may not be considered.

North Carolina follows the rule of “equitable distribution” when considering the issue of marital property division. Courts are not bound by a 50/50 split between the parties although that is common. Rather, the court will divide property in a manner considered to be fair and just. In some cases, an even split is not justifiable because of numerous factors.

The factors that the court will consider when deciding the division of property include:

  • Debts
  • The ages of the parties
  • The parties’ health conditions
  • The length of the marriage
  • The parties’ incomes and assets
  • What each party contributed to the marital property
  • Whether a spouse unfairly squandered any of the property
  • Tax consequences
