ALIMONY CAN COMPLICATE DIVORCE PROCEEDINGS



Spousal support is not always a given in a North Carolina divorce. In order to receive alimony or post-separation support, a party must prove that:

 


  • They were financially dependent on their spouse
  • They don’t have the resources to support themselves
  • Their spouse was previously supporting them
  • Their spouse has the means to pay alimony



Even if the party requesting support can prove the above, they may still be denied alimony in certain circumstances.  For example, what happens if one spouse had an affair?  What if he or she was abusive?  There are many circumstances that have an impact on whether you will be able to receive (or be ordered to pay) alimony.
