Alimony & The Financial Impact of Divorce

The financial impact of divorce can be minimal to substantial. And affluent spouses risk losing more in a divorce. Increasingly, women are paying spousal support and/or child support to their ex-husbands especially when the wife is the primary breadwinner in the house. There are many factors that can affect the type and amount of alimony you may be eligible to receive or be required to pay. And when amounts are contested, things can get complicated quickly. Therefore, it’s important to work with the right law firm who has navigated these waters many times to ensure you get a fair result.

    Our “Why”

    We do what we do because all too often we’ve seen good people being taken advantage of in divorce. We’ve seen them bilked by over-reaching spouses and exploited by lawyers who don’t understand the nuances of divorce law. In divorce, you need someone on your side who cares enough to give it to you straight and understands the complexity of North Carolina divorce laws. Family law is not about competition. It is about resolving, fixing, healing, being reasonable, and moving on, preferably in the shortest amount of time and with the least expense.

    About Spousal Support in North Carolina

    When one spouse makes more money / has accumulated more assets during the marriage than the other, alimony is a means to equalize the lifestyle of each spouse upon dissolution of the marriage.

    In accordance with North Carolina Domestic Codes governing spousal support, the court decides how much alimony a receiving ex-spouse should receive based on a number of factors such as:

    • Duration of marriage
    • A disparity in income between spouses
    • Each spouse’s individual assets
    • The age and health of both spouses
    • The standard of living the couple enjoyed during their married life 

    Temporary support is for the period of time between separation or filing for divorce until the case is finalized. Permanent alimony is for a defined amount of time and is the most common type of spousal support. You may also receive alimony until you find gainful employment if you do not have employment. You can also be reimbursed for money you have spent to help your spouse, such as business expenses or education. Alimony agreements can be modified after final judgments are made if circumstances change, such as the receiving spouse entering into a supportive relationship with another individual. The existence of a pre-nupital or post-nup agreement may also affect spousal support. Sometimes one spouse will contest the original agreement or amount which then requires a legal response. Unless there are no assets at stake, getting advice about your situation is highly advisable. Call us to ensure you are well protected and find out your options.
