Division Of Property

Jacksonville Division of Property Lawyer

Experienced Defense in North Carolina

Other than child custody, the division of marital assets and debts can be one of the most contentious aspects of a separation and divorce. Many times there is a marital home where one or both parties had been living. Other assets to be divided might include other real estate, cars, furniture and electronics, personal property, and even pets. In today’s economy, most marriages also have debts such as mortgages, equity lines, car loans, student loans, and credit card debts. Finally, there can be the issue of retirement benefits, military benefits, and pensions.

A significant part of the process can involve identifying and separating out what is marital property subject to equitable distribution and what is the individual property of one spouse or the other. North Carolina law provides rules guiding how this determination is to be made.

Make Sure Your Interests Are Protected

The ultimate question of how marital property and debt is divided can be resolved either through negotiation and mediation or through litigation in a courtroom. Working with a qualified attorney can often smooth out this process by providing a buffer between the parties and helping to facilitate the negotiation process while at the same time protecting your rights and if necessary going to court to stand up for your side of the story.

Contact The Trevor J. Avery Law Firm to protect your rights and create a fair arrangement with our experienced Jacksonville divorce lawyer.

The Opinions That Matter Most

    “I am extremely pleased with his service and would recommend him in a heartbeat!”
    I was facing 3 charges, granted the police officers completely overcharged and without merit, however, Trevor knew what to do in order to prepare a strong case to make sure that when he spoke with the DA this would be clearly displayed. If convicted of one of the charges I was accused of it would have put my employment in jeopardy. Needless to say, I was overjoyed and elated when I received his call that "ALL" charges had been dismissed! He charged me a reasonable fee and accepted a payment plan! I am extremely pleased with his service and would recommend him in a heartbeat!

    “I have my kids thanks to Mr. Avery.”
    I hired Mr. Avery to represent me for my custody case. He was upfront with me about what to expect right from the beginning and he came through. He was easy to talk to, and I knew he was being honest with me about my case. I had to call him a couple of times after business hours because of my work schedule and he still made time to answer my questions. I have my kids thanks to Mr. Avery. I would recommend him to anyone.
