Identifying Marital & Separate Property

In handling your high net worth divorce in Charlotte or Weddington, we will help you identify marital and separate property. We will help you keep separate property in your hands and ensure you have equal access to all marital property. It can be difficult to differentiate between marital and separate property when separate property, such as an inheritance or gift, was used to acquire an asset, but the value of the asset increased during your marriage, which will make at least a portion of the appreciation value marital property.

What if the value of a business you started before marriage increased while you were married? What percentage of that business's value does your spouse have ownership rights to?

Gain Protection & Secure What Is Yours

North Carolina is an equitable distribution state, which means fair distribution of marital property in the divorce process.
