Dividing Assets in Court

Generally speaking, there are three stages to the equitable distribution process: classifying which property is marital, separate, and divisible property; valuing the marital property; then distributing the marital property between the parties in an equitable and fair fashion.

Valuation of Property

Once it is determined which property held by the parties is marital property, it must then be valued. To make sure each spouse gets their intended share of the net value of the marital estate, the values must be accurate. This may include obtaining an appraisal of the marital residence and will likely include obtaining relevant statements for items such as retirement accounts.

Distribution of Property

Once it has been determined which property is subject to distribution and accurate values have been ascertained, the marital property must then be distributed to each spouse. It is first important to know that in North Carolina law, there is a presumption that marital property will be split evenly. This means that unless there are grounds that exist justifying an unequal distribution of the marital assets and debts, the assets and debts should be distributed evenly between the spouses.

If you have recently separated from your spouse, or you believe that you might be separating from your spouse soon, contact our office to schedule a consultation with attorney Doughton Horton to discuss the specifics of your case.
