When Results Matter...


In N.C. only a dependent spouse can receive alimony. A dependent spouse is defined as “a spouse, whether husband or wife, who is actually substantially dependent upon the other spouse for his or her maintenance and support or is substantially in need of maintenance and support from the other spouse.”
There are several confusing terms that are used in describing money a supporting spouse pays a dependent spouse: postseparation support, temporary alimony, alimony, permanent alimony. We can help you understand what you are entitled to or what you might have to pay.
