Alimony and post separation support (sometimes referred to as “temporary alimony”) are payable in North Carolina only if the spouse seeking it is considered a “dependent spouse” and the spouse from whom it is sought is a “supporting spouse.” These terms are technical, legal terms and you should speak to North Carolina Family Law Specialist Monty Beck to determine if you or your spouse qualifies. Generally, in making this determination, courts evaluate not only the current financial circumstances of each spouse but also the financial circumstances of the spouses in the latter years of the marriage.
