What To Know About Alimony And Spousal Support

In Maryland, there are three types of spousal support:

  1. Alimony pendente lite: This is awarded while the divorce proceeding is pending.
  2. Rehabilitative alimony: This type of support is awarded at the time of divorce and is intended to enable the receiving spouse to become self-supporting.
  3. Permanent alimony: In cases where there is a great difference between the income or lifestyle of the spouses and it would be unfair to one spouse to not receive assistance, permanent alimony may be awarded.

Based on your individual situation, our attorney will inform you as to what you can expect and how the court will determine alimony in your case. Many factors are considered, including:

  • Incomes of both spouses
  • Length of the marriage
  • Conduct of each party during the marriage
  • Earning capacity for each spouse
  • Contributions to the marriage
  • Job prospects and ability to become self-supporting for the spouse requesting support
