Equitable Distribution of Assets in a Divorce

Property Division Lawyer also Serving Lee County, Harnett County, Chatham County and Moore County

Dividing property during a divorce can sometimes be very difficult. Each party will often have very different ideas about what property rightfully belongs to them. We live in an "equitable distribution" state, which means that the property should be divided equitably. This does not necessarily mean equally. A determined Sanford family law attorney from the firm is invaluable in active negotiations with the opposing lawyer to bring agreement between you and your spouse. When agreement just can't be reached, the court will intervene and make the decisions for you. It is always best to avoid this consequence and your attorney will give you the greatest advantage for a successful outcome.
