Alimony Attorneys in North Carolina

An Important Issue in the Divorce Process

Divorce brings about an extremely volatile time in your life. One of the most significant challenges you will face is transitioning from one household to two – and navigating the financial implications of this major life step.

What You Need to Know About Alimony

In North Carolina, alimony is awarded on a case-by-case basis. Many people may not realize that alimony is not warranted in every situation. Nor does it follow a set formula when awarded. It is a 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 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 is paid in a lump sum, such as a payout as part of a property settlement agreement.

    “Tara Kay Johnson did an awesome job! If you're like me, you didn't think something like this would happen to you, but there you are at that moment in your life with a lot of questions and very few answers... doubt and emotion starts to take over, but fear not. As with many folks who have to go through this unfortunate event in your life, you want the strongest and most well-respected representation you can find. That is exactly what I received.
