Guiding You Through The Property Division Process

In North Carolina, the division of property during a divorce is governed by the principle of equitable distribution. However, this does not always mean that properly division is equal, but is fair given the circumstances of the marriage. It starts by categorizing property as separate, marital or divisible. We know that determining what constitutes the marital estate is crucial, whether it includes homes, vehicles retirement accounts or business interests.

Our attorneys and lawyers at Spidell Family Law are well-versed in the nuances of property division. We understand that a fair assessment often requires appraisals or valuations, especially in complex cases. The courts typically begin with the presumption of an equal division, but they are also empowered to consider a range of factors to decide if an unequal distribution would be more equitable. These factors include the duration of the marriage, the contributions of each spouse to the marital estate and the economic circumstances of each party.

At Spidell Family Law, we take the time to analyze every aspect of your estate, advising on how the court may view your assets and debts. We understand that each case is unique, and we are prepared to advocate for a distribution that reflects your interests and needs.
