Property Division in Wake County
Wake County is the second most populated county in North Carolina. Under North Carolina law, the court will divide the “marital property” and “divisible property” through a process called “Equitable Distribution.”
How does the court distribute property?
The court will determine the distribution of all marital property using a 3-step analysis. Assets are first identified, valued, and then distributed. An action for Equitable Distribution can be filed by either spouse.
