Dear againseperated:

Greetings. Yes, your spouse can ask for post separation support (and/or alimony) until the date the divorce is granted. Thank you.

Dear almostdone:

That depends on what the agreement says - whether or not it contains the proper waivers. Thank you.

I have filed for Divorce. We have lived seperate and apart for a year and I meet NC residency requirement. My question is, can my spouse ask for Post Seperation Support now. Or is it the case that if s/he needs support they s/he can only ask for Alimony and not Post Seperation Support?
