Property Division In North Carolina
North Carolina is an equitable property state. The court divides marital property in a fair and equitable manner. Marital property is the property obtained by either spouse during the course of the marriage, with a few exceptions including gifts and inheritances. Property brought into the marriage by each spouse is considered separate property. To divide the property, the court determines which property is separate and which is marital, and then divides the marital property equitably.
Sometimes, this means the property is divided equally, but this is not always the case. The court considers factors such as:
- Custody agreement
- Health of the spouses
- Separate property of the spouses
- Income of the spouses
