Are You Seeking Alimony Support?
If you are seeking alimony support from your spouse, there are a few steps to take to receive your full entitlement. Our Raleigh alimony lawyers have worked with many of our clients to help them get the alimony support they deserve.
Take These Steps for Raleigh Alimony
In order to receive alimony, a spouse must do one of the following:
a. Negotiate an alimony award with their spouse and formalize any agreement to pay alimony with a legal and enforceable settlement instrument such as a Consent Order or Separation Agreement with alimony provisions.
b. File a legal claim for alimony (lawsuit) in District Court and successfully assert the claim.
There are no shortcuts and there is no county or government agency that will assert alimony claims on your behalf.
Raleigh Divorce Lawyers Can Help Your Alimony Case
Our representation starts with an analysis of your finances and a determination of the appropriateness of an alimony claim. We explain the law of alimony and how it relates to your case. We give a preliminary opinion of the strength of your potential alimony claim and provide an estimated range, based upon our experience, of what an award would look like.
In consultation with our client, we either attempt to negotiate a settlement at the outset of the case, or we file a claim for alimony in court. If your spouse is unwilling to share important financial information or is completely unreasonable, a lawsuit can be beneficial in obtaining additional information or assuring the other party takes the claim seriously.
Will You Have to Go to Court to Receive Alimony?
In most cases with facts that support an award of Raleigh alimony, we are able to settle claims for our client without going to court. Occasionally we have to litigate alimony claims and we do so aggressively. Whatever the facts of your case, we will strive to ensure that you informed and treated fairly.
