Distribution of Property


#1

My son and his wife were just recently divorced in N. C. at Walnut Cove. She purchased a house in N.C. (while he was still in Va.) and put it in her name only. She forced him to leave the house while she had a man living there, still does to my knowledge, he didn’t walk away with too much. There were married about 15 years. Doesn’t he have right to half of the property? Thank you for any information you may furnish us with.

When a couple has a large business and many real estate assets can they just leave everything as is when getting a divorce. All real estate has each as having 1/2 interest already. The business is in the wifes name, but they want to keep it together. Is this possible as long as both parties agree?
