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
