The Duncan Difference

Duncan Legal has the experience to understand what the courts can and can’t do.

In North and South Carolina, judges have the power to make alimony decisions if one spouse requests it and the other opposes it. If you’re convinced you need financial support from your former spouse, do yourself a favor by hiring an experienced alimony attorney.

What is Alimony?

Alimony (also known as ‘spousal support’) are payments made by one spouse to the other. These payments are generally made by the spouse who made more money during the marriage. These payments are separate from child support and help to make up the financial inequity of a divorce.

An alimony case could result in the supported spouse receiving one of the following payment options:
  • Permanent payments
  • Lump sum payments
  • Temporary payments

How much alimony will the judge award you?

If he or she decides to grant alimony, the judge will consider factors like…
  • The duration of your marriage
  • Standard of living during the marriage
  • Marital misconduct or fault
  • Physical and emotional condition
  • Educated background
  • Employment history and earning potential
  • Earings
  • Expenses and needs
  • Marital and Nonmarital properties
  • Child Custody
  • Tax Consequences
  • Other support obligations
  • Other factors the court deems relevant
