How Does North Carolina Divide Marital Assets?
North Carolina is an equitable distribution state, meaning that marital assets will be split equitably, but not necessarily 50-50, in a divorce. Family judges consider a variety of factors before issuing a verdict. Some of the most important criteria include:
- The length of the marriage
- Each spouse’s contribution to the marriage
- Each spouse’s separate assets
- Whether one spouse supported the other while they advanced their education
- The tax penalties
It is important to have a lawyer on your side who can present your case in a persuasive light before the court. Judges have a great deal of leeway, so you need an advocate who can make your needs known.
