Protecting Your Financial Future In Spousal Support Matters
When a marriage ends in divorce, one household becomes two. If there is disparity in income between the spouses, it can cause a situation in which one spouse cannot support himself or herself alone. Spousal support, also known as post-separation support and alimony, is designed to address this problem.
At Parsons Law in Asheville, we handle a broad range of family law and divorce-related matters for clients in North Carolina. We are staunch advocates for our clients and will work tirelessly to ensure they receive a fair outcome.
How Is Spousal Support In North Carolina Determined?
Courts consider a wide range of circumstances when making spousal support determinations. Some of the most important factors include:
- The length of the marriage
- The earning power of each spouse
- The standard of living enjoyed during the marriage
- The age, health and physical well-being of each spouse
- Contributions one spouse made to the education and career advancement of the other
- Whether misconduct was involved in the divorce
Whether you are seeking spousal support, or your spouse is seeking support from you, it is important to have a strong legal ally on your side. The outcome of these proceedings will have a significant impact on your financial future.
