Divorce is a difficult process. Apart from the emotional struggle involved when a family breaks apart, the financial implications can be long lasting. North Carolina allows for one spouse to seek alimony (money) from the other spouse under appropriate circumstances. North Carolina General Statute § 50-16.1A is the controlling statute which requires a Court to find (1) a supporting spouse, (2) a dependent spouse and (3) the supporting spouse has the ability to provide support.
Whether a Court awards alimony, how much is awarded, and for how long is determined by the Court based upon the facts and circumstances unique to each marriage. Marital misconduct on the part of either spouse can also have a direct impact upon the Court’s decision. Having an experienced attorney to help navigate this difficult process can have lasting financial implications.
Contact Cristina Quantock for more information if you believe you will be required to pay alimony or feel you are eligible to receive it.
