Married couples become accustomed to living a financially-unified lifestyle. After a divorce, it can be difficult to transition to life without the financial assistance of the other spouse.

One of the most contentious and stressful concerns of any Maryland divorce is alimony or spousal support. The purpose of alimony is to provide sufficient support, regardless of income level, so that a former spouse may live a post-divorce lifestyle similar to the spouse’s married lifestyle. Maryland alimony may be awarded to help alleviate the financial burden of divorce.

In a Maryland divorce, either party, husband or wife, may have to pay or may be eligible to receive alimony. When starting the Maryland divorce process, clients are often concerned about alimony and the stability of their financial future. At the Law Office of LaSheena M. Williams, we understand the impact an alimony order or alimony award can have you financially. We are prepared to discuss your options and your reasonable expectations as to whether you may have to pay or receive alimony.

Determining Alimony in Maryland

A Maryland Circuit Court judge or Family Law Magistrate will consider a number of factors before ordering alimony in Montgomery County or Prince George’s County. The Judge or Magistrate will determine who pays, how much, and the duration of support.
A few of the Maryland Alimony factors that go into an alimony determination include:

    • The age of the parties
    • The duration of the marriage
    • The present and future earning capacity of each party
    • The standard of living established during the marriage
    • The supporting party’s ability to pay
    • The parties’ respective contributions to the marriage
    • Each spouse’s financial assets
    • The needs of each party and children
    • Childrearing decisions that affected careers
    • The tax consequences to both parties

Types of Maryland Alimony

There are several types of alimony that the Maryland Circuit Court Judge or Family Law Magistrate may award during the divorce process:

Temporary Maryland Alimony.

Temporary alimony is typically awarded when the parties are separated, but not divorced. This type of spousal support is granted for a specific amount and length of time.

Rehabilitative Maryland Alimony.

Rehabilitative alimony is typically awarded to assist the dependent spouse while they receive additional education or training that will allow them to relocate or find employment. Rehabilitative spousal support is typically awarded for a specific time period that will allow the dependent spouse’s expected re-entry into the workforce.

 Permanent Maryland Alimony.

Permanent alimony is granted when there is no expectation that the spouse will ever be able to financially support himself or herself. This type of alimony is often awarded for long-term marriages where one spouse exited the workforce to be home taking care of children and/or the home. Permanent spousal support awards are indefinite and continue until death or until the dependent spouse remarries.
