Post-Separation Support is a form of alimony. In fact, in previous forms of the North Carolina statutes it was called “alimony pendente lite” and then “temporary alimony.” Like alimony, post- separation support is an economic reality computation based on one party being the supporting spouse and the other being the dependent spouse.
“Dependent spouse” means a spouse, whether husband or wife, who is actually substantially dependent upon the other spouse for his or her maintenance and support or is substantially in need of maintenance and support from the other spouse.
“Supporting spouse” means a spouse, whether husband or wife, upon whom the other spouse is actually substantially dependent for maintenance and support or from whom such spouse is substantially in need of maintenance and support.
