How spousal support is determined and collected

Spousal support is often one of the primary issues decided in a North Carolina divorce. However, it's usually one of the last points that gets settled in court. That's because the division of assets has a big impact on how much support an ex-spouse might need to maintain a decent standard of living. The final figure is often calculated using five different factors: the recipient spouse's needs, length of marriage, age/health, prior lifestyle and the ability of the payer spouse to pay.
