When equitable distribution may not be equal distribution

In our last post, we talked about the North Carolina law that allows for equitable distribution of property in divorces.

Today we examine how equitable distribution works in practice.

What happens when a military couple divorces in North Carolina?

How does social media behavior affect my divorce?

Turning to social media as an outlet during difficult times is something many people do.
