What Is Alimony And Who Gets It?

Family law matters such as alimony and spousal support require attorneys who are not only considerate of your personal situation, but who are also willing to aggressively represent your best interests. At The Law Office of Tamela T. Wallace P.A. in Charlotte, we provide clients with a combination of assertiveness and compassion to ensure that they get the results they deserve and the support they need.

Unlike child support, there is no set formula and the amount determined is at the judge's discretion. Spousal support is not guaranteed, and it must be proved that the recipient is in need. This is why it's crucial that you have an aggressive attorney on your side.

We'll Help You Understand Spousal Rights

Alimony can be paid from husband to wife or wife to husband. It can last for an indefinite period or come with a set end time. In North Carolina, the court considers 16 factors when determining alimony, including:

  • Income
  • Lifestyle
  • Length of the marriage
  • Earning power
  • Marital misconduct by either spouse
