North Carolina Property Laws
In North Carolina, both the debt and property acquired during the course of a marriage should be divided according to the process of equitable distribution, meaning that this distribution should be fair, but it does not necessarily mean equal. A judge puts a couple’s assets through a three-step process in order to determine what constitutes as fair. The first step is identification and classification, the next is valuation, and the final step is the judge’s ruling on distribution.
The assets considered by a judge when determining property division include, but is not limited to:
- The home
- Any vacation homes or properties
- Family businesses
- Retirement funds
- Consumer and mortgage debt
