Charlotte Alimony & Asset Protection Attorneys

In order to file for divorce in North Carolina, spouses must be separated for one year. During the year of separation, a dependent spouse may need the intervention of a family law court to provide a support order. Our family law attorneys at Jetton & Meredith help separated spouses seek and obtain post-separation support during the separation period and represent spouses seeking alimony provisions as part of their divorce decrees.*

Post-Separation Support (PSS)

PSS is, in effect, temporary alimony. PSS is provided to support a spouse until an alimony order is entered, an alimony claim is denied by the judge, or an out-of-court agreement is reached.

Alimony Negotiation

Either party in a divorce may be awarded post-divorce spousal support. A family court may also order alimony for a longer term. Alimony may be payable as a lump sum, or in monthly or quarterly installments over time. Judges may use many factors, including age, health, and ability to enter the workforce, when determining alimony provisions. If one spouse has a history of domestic violence or criminal conviction, their chances of receiving alimony will be reduced. Our family lawyers are experienced in seeking alimony for clients and defending against such claims in Charlotte and surrounding areas of North Carolina.

Charlotte Spousal Support Attorneys

Many of our clients have benefited from the relationships we have established with professional experts such as tax professionals.* Such professionals can advise people approaching divorce on what the consequences of different spousal support agreements may be. Is it to your advantage to concede more assets such as real estate to your spouse rather than to pay alimony? Our family law attorneys can help you discover the answers to such questions before a divorce decree is finalized.

Spousal support payments can have a significant impact on your life following a divorce. Experienced lawyers with a strong understanding of state laws may be able to argue that a spouse needs financial support to maintain a certain quality of life, or that a spouse does not need alimony. Trust the compassionate family law attorneys at Jetton & Meredith to fight for your rights.*
