Leading Raleigh family law attorney, Cathy C. Hunt, with the North Carolina divorce and family law firm of Gailor, Wallis, and Hunt, says throughout the years of a marriage, husbands and wives typically acquire property. When the tragedy of a marital separation occurs, couples have to go through the difficult process of dividing property. North Carolina law defines this property as homes, cars, bank accounts, businesses, IRA's and stock options. During a divorce, a husband and wife are entitled to equitable distribution of their property.
Raleigh divorce attorney, C. Hunt, aggressive in North Carolina civil courts, asserts, once a couple has separated, the husband and/or wife can petition the court for equitable distribution of the property the couple acquired through the course of their marriage. Leading Raleigh family law attorney, Hunt, further cites North Carolina General Statute 50-20 defining Marital Property as real and personal property acquired by either spouse or both spouses during the course of the marriage and before the date of separation of the parties. The property must be presently owned, and this definition excludes property determined to be separate property or divisible property.
