Keeping Your Share In Your Divorce
When someone realizes that a divorce is in their future, one of the biggest concerns they may have often involves who will end up with what assets. Keeping ownership over your nonmartial assets while determining what you own in martial assets by yourself is rarely simple. Thankfully, you do not have to go through it on your own.
At Stauff & Gross, PLLC, our North Carolina lawyers know the challenges that come with a divorce, and we know how to help our clients resolve their legal needs in a swift and effective manner. Our goal as your attorneys is to provide you with the compassionate, responsive and committed representation you deserve throughout every step of your divorce.
The Challenges Of Asset Division
A key part of any divorce agreement is dividing a couple’s assets or debts, which are called “marital property.” The legal term for this division is “equitable distribution.” While the term suggests that assets will be divided equitably, or fairly, this is not always true. In fact, in some cases, it is not at all fair to divide the assets evenly. Because of this, property division can be a very contentious part of the divorce process.
Before attempting to divide your property on your own, engage a divorce attorney who is experienced in handling equitable distribution cases in North Carolina courts. This is the best way to ensure that you are receiving the property you are entitled to without unknowingly giving up your rights to it.
