Divorce from bed and board

The house is marital property unless you signed something giving her sole interest in the property when you signed the deed over to her.

The Divorce from Bed and Board will not affect your right to alimony, however if the allegations are true, they may impact your ability to get alimony.

You should consult with an attorney to make sure your rights to Equitable Distribution and Alimony are properly preserved.

I have been married to my wife for five years and Im the dependent spouse… my wife has a six figuire income, I m at this time presently not working. How does her trying to file for a bed and board divorce relates if granted or awarded or not to spousal support (alimony) if any in north carolina and also what about proerty distribution?

We have a house which was deeded in both our names… I recently took mine of the deed due to a possible federal lien to protect our interest… since then Its resolved and I desire to put my name back on the deed… i WAS TOLD that since we are married it is still maritial property. Since she’s trying this crazy Div B & B I wonder if she will allow my name to go back on the deed?
