Getting divorced is hard enough on its own, without worrying about all the logistical details that will follow. Property division is one of the most important parts of a divorce, since the decisions you and your spouse make will affect your financial future for years to come, and in many cases spouses do not agree on what belongs to whom.
The attorneys at Roupas Law Firm, PLLC, in Greensboro, will help you work through this process efficiently and effectively so that you can focus on more important things.
Some property is easy to divide between two spouses — especially the separate property that each spouse owned before they were married. But if you purchased something together, particularly high-value items like a home or a vehicle, dividing that property requires more nuance and negotiation.
In North Carolina, marital property is distributed "equitably" — meaning that all decisions can be evaluated in light of the broader context of the marriage and the contributions and sacrifices that each spouse has made. If one parent left a job to focus on raising a child, for instance, he or she might have a strong claim to a greater share of property if that imbalance has not already been addressed through spousal support.
