North Carolina is an equitable distribution state. This means that the courts will divide property fairly, but not always equally, based on numerous factors. Because every marriage is unique, deciding what is equitable is not always easy, and the valuation and allocation of certain assets such as businesses, stock options, pension plans and retirement accounts can be complex. Seeking experienced legal representation early on in the process is in your best interest.

We will make every effort to help you and your spouse settle these matters through negotiation or alternative dispute resolution. If this is not possible, our firm is accomplished at litigation who will fully advocate for you in court.
