Alimony Attorneys in the Cabarrus County Area

Alimony is not routinely awarded in North Carolina. Unlike a few decades ago when there was one breadwinner in the family, today's courts expect both spouses to work and be self-supporting after they split.

Spousal support may apply, however, if there is a large gap in earning power, or one spouse cannot maintain a similar standard of living because of age or health. The decision is ultimately up to a judge. At Billick Family Law, our role is to anticipate how a judge would rule and either negotiate support as part of the divorce settlement or make a case in court for our client's position.

Post-Separation Support and Alimony in North Carolina

A judge can order post-separation support if you are legally separating, or alimony if you are divorcing. The law favors rehabilitative support over permanent alimony — temporary support until recipient spouses can "get on their feet." Permanent alimony is rarely awarded, unless one spouse is a high earner and the other is disabled, elderly, uneducated or otherwise unable to earn a decent living.
