Raleigh Distribution of Assets Attorney
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.
At Hopper Law Office, we understand that dividing your property can be complex and confusing. Our Raleigh distribution of assets lawyer is here to guide you through every step of the process. We are committed to helping our clients obtain the best possible results in their cases. While some cases can be resolved through mediation or arbitration, we understand that your situation may require litigation. Our family law Attorney are prepared to help you pursue a fair division of your property through whatever means are necessary.
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 Attorney 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 Attorney 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.
