Dividing Your Property
In marriage, the financial lives of husbands and wives are inevitably intertwined — perhaps you’ve purchased a home together, worked together to pay off one spouse’s debt, or you long ago stopped keeping track of who pays for what on a day-to-day basis. This kind of financial partnership makes perfect sense in a marriage, but it can be difficult to divide property and assets in the event that a marriage ends.
Our goal at Kenny & Lowry is to help you divide marital property in a way that reflects your interests. The decisions you make now can affect your finances far into the future, so it’s important to approach this issue with the counsel of a skilled attorney.
Ensure That Equitable Distribution Is Truly Equitable
Like most states, North Carolina recognizes the principle of “equitable distribution,” which means that the property should be divided between spouses with the goal being that each spouse gets his or her fair share.
Our clients possess a wide range of assets and liabilities, including:
- Your home and other real estate holdings
- Bank accounts – individually and jointly named
- Investment accounts
- Retirement accounts
- Credit card debts
- Student loan debts
