Equitable Distribution During Divorce Proceedings

North Carolina employs equitable distribution in dividing marital (community) property as a result of divorce. Instead of a strict fifty-fifty split, in which each spouse receives exactly one-half of the marital or separate property, equitable distribution looks at a variety of factors including, but not limited to the following:

  • Earning power of the spouses
  • Separate property of the spouses
  • One spouse having done all the work to acquire the property
  • The value that one spouse contributed as the home-maker for the family
  • Economic fault of one spouse in wasting and dissipating marital property
  • Duration of the marriage
  • Age and relative health of the spouses
  • The responsibility for providing for children of the marriage
  • Spousal abuse or marital infidelity
