Is Alimony A Possibility?
Alimony is often one of the most contentious aspects of the divorce process. It can also be quite complex. If you are involved in a divorce in which you or your spouse are seeking alimony, it is critical that you have an experienced divorce lawyer on your side who will protect your rights.
At the Raleigh Divorce Law Firm, our attorneys practice exclusively in divorce and family law to provide the skilled and knowledgeable representation you require.
How Alimony Is Determined
If spouses are unable to reach an agreement, alimony, also called spousal support or maintenance, becomes a matter for the court. The law in North Carolina grants judges considerable discretion in alimony claims during the divorce process. The spouse seeking alimony must prove to the Court that he or she is a dependent spouse. Other considerations include:
- The income of the spouses including substantial assets
- Any disability of the spouse seeking alimony
- Issue of fault; infidelity may bar the dependent spouse from receiving alimony
Our alimony attorney can explain the details and answer your questions pertaining to spousal support. Learn how it is calculated and whether you may receive it or may have to pay it, based on your specific situation.
Diligent Advocacy Through Spousal Support Concerns
It is critical that you have a skilled family law lawyer who can negotiate a favorable agreement on your behalf or make a compelling case on your behalf at trial. You will receive the knowledgeable and vigorous representation you require as a client of our reputable legal practice.
