Dear Steve777,

In North Carolina, you do not have to prove marital misconduct to be entitled to alimony. Your wife only has to show that she is a dependent spouse. If you want to show that she is intentionally earning less than she could, then you would probably need to hire a vocational expert to testify to that. Otherwise, even given your estimates of her earning potential, you will probably pay her alimony. There is no calculator for determining the amount or length of alimony, but given the facts you have provided, I imagine you could pay anywhere from $1800-$3000 per month, depending on her needs, and for 8-12 years. However, it would be entirely in the judge’s discretion to determine how much and for how long.

Good luck,
