Maryland Lawyers for Alimony and Spousal Support
Maryland has two forms of alimony: rehabilitative (temporary) and indefinite (permanent).
Generally, both types of alimony are intended to address the parties’ financial disparities and help a financially dependent spouse become self-supporting. Unlike child support, Maryland law does not set forth rigid schedules for an alimony award.
Specific statutory criteria exist for each form of alimony that must be considered when the Court makes an equitable determination for the nature and amount of an alimony award. In certain circumstances set forth by statute, or if agreed to between the parties, an alimony award can be modified or terminated.
Alimony may also be extended under certain circumstances notwithstanding a prior Court order setting a duration and amount.
An analysis of whether alimony is appropriate is a complex legal and fact-intensive question that is heavily dependent upon the circumstances of a divorce matter.
