Marital Property

Greensboro Property Division Lawyer

Divide Your Marital Property Equitably After a Divorce

Getting divorced is hard enough on its own, without worrying about all the logistical details that will follow. Property division is one of the most important parts of a divorce, since the decisions you and your spouse make will affect your financial future for years to come, and in many cases spouses do not agree on what belongs to whom.

Our family law attorneys can discuss your situation and help you come to an agreement regarding who will receive certain property and debts. If we are unable to resolve your matter out of a courtroom through settlement, then we are prepared to help you litigate in court. The property division lawyers in Greensboro at Roupas Law Firm will help you work through this process efficiently and effectively so that you can focus on more important things.

What's Considered Marital Property?

Divorce can be complicated, especially when the couple shares a lot of property and financial responsibilities. 

When it comes to the equitable distribution of marital property, the courts will look at:

  • Bank accounts and investments
  • Retirement plans and pension plans
  • Homes, vehicles, and other valuables
  • Debts and loans that need repaying

We Can Help You Resolve Property Disputes

Some property is easy to divide between two spouses - especially the separate property that each spouse owned before they were married. But if you purchased something together, particularly high-value items like a home or a vehicle, dividing that property requires more nuance and negotiation.

In North Carolina, marital property is distributed "equitably" - meaning that all decisions can be evaluated in light of the broader context of the marriage and the contributions and sacrifices that each spouse has made. If one parent left a job to focus on raising a child, for instance, he or she might have a strong claim to a greater share of property if that imbalance has not already been addressed through spousal support.

Our Greensboro property division lawyers can help distribute property, including:

  • Homes, cabins, and other real estate holdings
  • Family-owned businesses and business assets
  • Hidden assets
  • Marital debt
  • Vehicles
  • Retirement accounts
  • IRAs
  • Pensions
