Alimony under North Carolina law is a form of spousal support.  It is “permanent” spousal support where postseparation support is temporary.   North Carolina does not have guidelines that automatically calculate the duration or amount of alimony.  Affidavits are usually a part of eery alimony case in North Carolina.

The principle concepts of award alimony relate to which spouse is the supporting spouse, which spouse is dependent, and whether particular fault grounds  exist.
