Charlotte Property Division Lawyer

Serving Monroe & Matthews, NC

At Krusch Divorce Resolution, we understand that marital property division is one or the most prominent issues in every divorce. To ensure that you have the best legal representation possible, our Charlotte property division lawyer practices exclusively in the area of North Carolina and has over four decades of experience negotiating, litigating and mediating disputes over marital property as well as debt division.

Some questions that you need to consider prior to seeking spousal support include:

  • Who gets the house or will we sell the house — or homes — after the divorce?
  • Who pays the mortgage after the separation?
  • What will happen to other real estate investments?
  • How will we divide our retirement accounts, pensions, 401(k) plans, stocks or other assets?
  • Who is responsible for credit card debts?
  • What will happen to our family-owned business?

North Carolina Equitable Distribution

The division of property in debt in North Carolina is based upon North Carolina laws of equitable distribution. In brief, equitable distribution follows that property and debt incurred during the marriage must be divided fairly between each of the parties, which does not automatically mean that property and debt will be divided equally.

While North Carolina law presumes that an equal division of marital property and debt is fair, this is not always the case.

Marital property in North Carolina is:

  • Property acquired during the marriage
  • Assets acquired prior to separating from one’s spouse
  • Property that is divided and disturbed following a divorce

  • I have used Alan several times over the past 15 to 20 years. He is a caring and wise individual!

    “I have used Alan several times over the past 15 to 20 years. He is a caring and wise individual. I have always been very pleased with the service that Alan provided. If you need to get "lawyered up" for a domestic case, I highly recommend Alan.”

  • Alan is a sophisticated professional.

    “Alan is a sophisticated professional. Wow, did I say wow?!!!! He will tell you up front EXACTLY what will happen with your case. Also known as the truth, which (by the way you probably already know.) My advice is to just let him do his job -that he is more than capable of doing. Don't ask too many questions or get yourself worked up. Alan will tell you in advance almost the exact outcome of your case to a t. In the end you can feel good about him as a human being because he won't resort to less than favorable behaviour. And by that I mean other attorneys who have to use immature tactics to make up for what they lack as men. Although it is quite entertaining to watch some of them!!!Hahahahaha!!!!! Submitted by JULIE MEDLIN, who JUST WON HER CASE!!!!!!!!! Thank you ALAN KRUSCH!”
