Raleigh Distribution of Assets Attorneys
Dividing Debts & Assets During a Separation or Divorce
If you are getting ready to go through a divorce or separation, you will
need to decide how to divide your debts and assets. North Carolina is
an Equitable Distribution state. That means the distribution of your assets
must be fair. However, this does not necessarily mean equal. Although
dividing property 50/50 is often fair, that is not true for every case.
You will also need to figure out how to “divide” a house,
car, or other items that can’t necessarily be split. On top of this,
property that is considered “marital property” is subject
to division. It can be difficult on your own to determine which of your
assets belong to you, which belong to your spouse, and which must be divided.

Discovering Hidden Assets
In the pursuit of your fair share, it is important to know if your spouse
has any hidden assets. This is a much more common occurrence than many
people think. Therefore, you do not need to feel guilty if you become
suspicious of your spouse. While it is significantly more difficult to
hide assets from a spouse because of current technology, it is still possible.
Some spouses hide funds by sending them to their relatives, putting them
in a safe-deposit box, or placing them in offshore accounts.
If you suspect that your spouse is hiding assets from you so that they
don’t have to be divided in your divorce, you need to consult with
our family law attorneys as soon as possible. With years of experience
handling property division cases, we know where to look and what questions
to ask to help you find hidden assets.
Dealing with Hidden Debt
Assets are not the only thing divided during a divorce or separation –
debts are too. There have been numerous cases where one spouse has hidden
debts during the marriage. When these debts are brought to light during
the divorce process, the other spouse is overwhelmed by the amount of
debt they are in. This puts the innocent spouse at risk of losing out
on the value of the marital estate at no fault of their own.
If your spouse has engaged in financial misconduct without your knowledge,
our attorneys can help you hold your spouse accountable and fight for
a fair settlement. We can help you gather the necessary evidence and present
a compelling case to the court that a 50/50 split is not fair, because
your spouse has wasted a significant amount of your marital finances.
