Alimony Laws In Maryland

Alimony Lawyer Serving Clients Throughout Maryland

In Maryland, there are various types of spousal support that may be awarded to a spouse or partner who faces a financial disadvantage following divorce. Types of alimony include:

  • Temporary: Awarded in cases when a spouse or partner needs short-term financial support, typically until landing employment.
  • Rehabilitative: Awarded when a spouse or partner requires job training or to complete education needed to enter the job market.
  • Permanent: Typically only awarded in cases of long-term marriage, when one spouse or partner has no marketable job skills because of serving the family as a homemaker.

Maryland Alimony Laws And Mediation

Alimony is often one of the most contested issues in any divorce. Maryland family law judges expect spouses or partners and attorneys to first try to work out a resolution to contested issues without needing to bring the matter to court. Hiring a mediation professional is an excellent option for negotiating a fair settlement under the guidance of a trained mediator who also understands the law and knows what will be acceptable to a judge. I am on a panel of court-appointed mediators, ready to help you and the other party seek a cost-efficient resolution to your alimony dispute.
