What Factors Influence Property Distribution?
When ending a marriage, former spouses have the opportunity to reach a private compromise on asset division. Granted, this is not possible for every couple. Some exes do not work together well; others do, but cannot agree on certain assets. In these situations, a North Carolina family law judge will issue a decision. The court’s equitable division order will depend on factors such as:
- Separate assets
- Tax consequences
- Contributions to the marital estate
- Contributions to the marital debts
There is no hard-and-fast formula that the court uses when dividing marital assets. Each spouse and their attorney can request a certain distribution arrangement from the court based on their personal needs. The judge has an immense amount of discretion, so it is crucial to have a lawyer advocating for you in court.
