Experienced Divorce & Property Division Lawyers in New Bern, NC

Determining an equitable distribution of marital assets can be the most technically difficult part of a divorce. If you are dealing with complex property division issues, it is in your best interests to seek the help of an experienced family law attorney.

North Carolina courts use an “equitable distribution” approach to the division of assets during a divorce. This means the court will not always divide marital property 50-50, but will instead use a number of factors to determine what is fair. These factors may include:

  • Nonmarital property, if one spouse has significantly more than another spouse
  • Earning power of both spouses
  • Who acquired or maintained the asset, particularly in terms of a family business
  • Services as a homemaker, including how that may affect future earning capacity
  • Duration of the marriage
  • Age and health of both spouses
  • Tax consequences of property division
  • Premarital agreements
