North Carolina Division of Assets
North Carolina is an equitable distribution state, which means that the court will divide the marital property equitably. Generally, the courts split the marital property equally, but there could be compelling reasons to divide the property differently. For instance, if one of the parties has substantial separate property, the children will live with one parent in the marital residence or if one party is disabled, the court could adjust the distribution to reflect those circumstances.
Not all property owned by the couple is marital property. Property that one spouse had before the marriage, gifts and inheritances are all separate property.
High Net Worth Divorce
When one or both spouses have significant assets, it is especially important to work with a family law attorney with extensive experience in high-asset divorce. High net worth divorces often involve complex financial and real estate issues. Mr. Hunter has the experience and the knowledge to recognize tax, real estate and bankruptcy implications during the division of assets in divorce. The knowledge enables him to more efficiently resolve a property distribution matter.
