Permanent Spousal Support

Charlotte Divorce Lawyers

Permanent alimony is spousal support awarded as a part of your final divorce order. However, the word "permanent" can sometimes be a misnomer when talking about post-divorce support. In the past, the higher-earning spouse would typically be ordered to pay alimony to the lower- or non-earning spouse for the rest of his or her life. Nowadays, permanent alimony is the term used to signify post-divorce financial support, but the payments may only be required for a set period of time.

In many circumstances, the divorcing couple may not agree upon terms of spousal support. When an impasse does arise, the issue will likely need to be litigated at trial. When you work with our Charlotte divorce attorneys, there are a number of ways we can promote your position. We will dig deep into the circumstances in your case and identify the best legal strategies to accomplish your goals.
