Winston-Salem and Greensboro Lawyers — Property in a Divorce

In North Carolina divorce, the court follows an equitable distribution standard for the division of property and debts. This means marital assets are divided in a manner that the court feels is fair — which may not necessarily mean equal. The court considers a number of factors in order to determine what is fair (equitable):

  • Age and health of both spouses
  • Financial situation of both spouses, including any income or active support obligations
  • Contribution to the marriage, including contribution to homemaking or to the other spouse's employability
  • Actions by one spouse to preserve wealth or waste assets
  • Alimony or spousal maintenance determinations
  • Other factors

We Seek Cost-Effective Solutions That Avoid Animosity

Our divorce and family law practice is led by veteran attorney R. Anthony (Tony) Hartsoe, who is a certified by the state of North Carolina as a family law mediator. Whether representing your interests in negotiations or coaching you through divorce mediation, we commit to resolving property disputes as efficiently as possible without the added emotional and financial strain of trial. However, we will not hesitate to take your case to court if that makes more sense to obtain a fair division of property.
