As you go through your divorce, all property acquired during your marriage will be considered for division. North Carolina is an equitable distribution state, which means that your marital property will be divided in an equitable manner if certain requirements are met. Marital property can include bank accounts that are in both parties names, real estate, retirement accounts that grew during the course of your marriage, as well as other assets.
