Winston and Greensboro Alimony Attorney

Divorce involves an extremely volatile time in your life. Among the many transitions being experienced is the challenge of going from one household to two, and the financial implications of such.

Are you concerned about making sure the alimony award is sufficient to meet your financial needs? Are you worried that your spouse will attempt to allege marital fault in order to sway the court's decision in ordering financial support?

At the family law office of Hartsoe & Associates, P.C., we understand that you likely have many questions about alimony (or about palimony if you are unmarried, but in a cohabitation situation). Our divorce and family law attorneys answer your questions and passionately serve as your trusted advocates.

What You Need to Know About North Carolina Alimony

Alimony (also referred to as spousal support or spousal maintenance) is a personal issue directly related to the unique aspects of your case. What many people may not realize is that alimony is not warranted in every situation. Nor does it follow a set formula when awarded. It is a very case-specific issue that can be determined through an agreement or by the court.

When brought to the court, the court will evaluate 15 factors to determine:

  • If alimony/spousal support is warranted
  • What form of support should be awarded
  • How long support should be paid
  • How much alimony/spousal support should be paid

These factors range from issues such as the length of the marriage and the employability of each spouse to contributions to the marriage, and even marital fault.

While most people understand alimony to be a sum of money that is paid on an ongoing basis by one spouse to the other, there are many situations where alimony takes the form of a lump sum arrangement, such as a payout as part of a property settlement agreement.
