Equitable Distribution

In North Carolina, the property that a married couple has amassed between their date of marriage and date of separation is distributed between the parties through a process known as Equitable Distribution.  Typically, in Equitable Distribution, each spouse will be awarded 50% of the marital assets and debts. At Garrett Walker Aycoth & Olson, we work hard to ensure that our clients receive their fair share!

The Greensboro family law attorneys of Garrett, Walker, Aycoth & Olson will assist you in inventorying, classifying, valuing, and distributing your separate and marital property no matter how much or how little. In some cases, we even seek an interim distribution of martial property to sustain spouses during litigation or negotiations.

We are experienced in Equitable Distribution cases involving high net worth individuals, business owners, and other cases with added complexities. Our attorneys have a network of experts including, accountants, appraisers, and business valuators who are available to assist our clients when necessary. 

Our Triad equitable distribution attorneys are competent at drafting settlement documents including Separation Agreements, court orders, and QDROs to resolve Equitable Distribution cases. QDROs, or Qualified Domestic Relations Orders, are necessary to divide certain retirement/investment accounts after separation.
