Divorce case resources


#1

The NC appellate courts (Court of Appeals and NC Supreme Court) do have recent published opinions, at least for the past few years, available online.

However, the appellate courts can and do issue unpublished opinions when no novel issue of law was presented during the appeal.


#2

There is no specific place I am aware of that makes these cases available to the general public. There is quite a bit available on our website.

Where?

I am searching for case laws regarding UNequitable distribution. Specific cases where one is granted an unequitable distribution due to whatever. I really need this. I do not want my stbx to receive half of anything due to the stress, the threats, his violence (he’s currently incarcerated for this), soliciting prostitution and having one in our bed in our home. There must be something. Please advise.

Thanks.

ED does not consider marital fault.

That being said, equitable distribution is not necessarily equal distribution, either.

Yes, equitable is not a synonym for equal

The Duke law library is open to the public. I do not know if they have online resources available to the public, but the cases are published in hard copies and you can read them directly from the statute books. I wish you the best of luck.
