Your Alimony Lawyer

Alimony has become one of the most infamous aspects of a divorce.  It may be the reason that many divorces are put off.  Know what’s expected of you so you can make the right choice.

Set Your Limits

An Alimony Lawyer Protecting Your Interests

Like much in NC family law, couples are allowed to work out spousal support or alimony between themselves.  But if an agreement cannot be reached, the court can step in.

After the dust has settled from the divorce, there is often one thing that remains: alimony.  The word itself strikes fear in many considering filing for a divorce in Greensboro, North Carolina.  The financial ramifications can extend far further than your court date.

To make matters even more convoluted, there are no “alimony guidelines” in NC. There also isn’t a limit on how short or long payments may last. Instead, a judge in North Carolina considers a number of factors. Where do you even start with all that?

The best advice we can give is to act promptly and rationally.  You need a qualified, dedicated alimony lawyer who will act quickly and decisively to protect you, your financial situation, and your rights.

Treating You Fairly

It is the court’s job to award alimony based on equality.  However, what is considered “fair” by both parties is often subject to fiery debate.  Don’t pay more than you owe and don’t get less than you deserve.

The amount of alimony payments required can be affected by many different factors.  And taking all of these factors into consideration can make the whole matter seem even more confusing.  You need a legal advocate and partner.
