Grounds for Divorce & Property

North Carolina is an equitable division state, meaning that each spouse owns the income they earn during the marriage as well as any property that is in their name alone. During a divorce case, the judge typically assumes that all marital property will be evenly split. It is the responsibility of each spouse to prove that they are entitled to a different share of the marital property.

In our state, the only basis for divorce is separation for a year. In order to be granted a divorce, a couple must demonstrate that they have lived separate and apart for at least one year and had no intention of reconciling with each other.
