How Property Is Divided During A Divorce

North Carolina has in place an equitable distribution process when it comes to division of property during a divorce. The courts in North Carolina have great discretion in deciding how property should be divided during divorce. The property and assets may not be split evenly. Instead, courts try to divide property fairly.

When making such determinations, the court make look at how long you were married, your education, age and health, custody and visitation considerations, and how much you and your spouse contributed to the acquisition of assets while the marriage took place.

Sometimes the process for dividing assets is not easy. The assets a couple acquires during a marriage can include stock options, job benefits, and investment and retirement accounts. Calculating the value of the assets can be tricky. Also, sometimes couples may have considerable debt, and dividing this debt also requires analysis.
