If you have divorced but have not yet settled the property matters of the community, then you will need to file a motion in the court where you filed for divorce for a property settlement
. If the property is in both of your names, he cannot sell it. If the property is in his name alone he can sell it. If you bought the property while you were married, North Carolina is an equitable distribution
state and you will have to ask in your motion for an equitable distribution of the marital assets. When you file for your property settlement, you need to also file a motion for a restraining order
prohibiting him from selling the land until the property settlement is arranged.
