Understanding Property Division and Equitable Distribution in North Carolina:
In North Carolina, when a married couple decides to end their marriage, the division of property and assets acquired during the marriage is subject to equitable distribution laws. Equitable distribution does not necessarily mean an equal 50/50 split; rather, it aims to divide marital property and debts fairly based on various factors defined under state law.

Our attorneys will carefully review your marital assets, debts, income, contributions, and other pertinent factors to build a solid foundation for your case.
