Equitable distribution of property in divorce proceedings can be confusing and frustrating. It is often difficult for couples to prioritize the assets and debts acquired throughout their marriage. Under North Carolina law, courts require an equitable property division upon the dissolution of a marriage. This means that the distribution of property must be fair to both sides. In some instances, the courts allow for an unequal distribution of property in which one side would get more than 50% of the marital estate or debts.
This might seem overwhelming, but guidance from a qualified divorce attorney can make a significant difference in how effectively you can enforce your rights and protect your best interests during the property division process. If you need help understanding the nuances of this process, you should work with a Charlotte property division lawyer today.
