I have recently been served divorce papers (Oct 31st to be exact). I only have a couple more weeks to file my reply with the court. I would like to file for spousal support/alimony. I am thinking of your online resources to assist, but I couldn’t get the questions I needed answered when I called. Please help answer the following so I can determine if the rosen online will work for my situation:
a) We have been separated for almost 2 years, would spousal support be for retro payments?
b) Do I/could I file paperwork for both spousal support and alimony?
c) Would I need to file the paperwork/motion for support/alimony with the court along with the divorce papers received?
Now that I have been served with the divorce papers, I don’t know what the timeline is and in what order I need to do what. I’m in Mecklenburg county. Thank you!
