  • Determining Alimony in Maryland

    Richard Lebovitz | | Tags: Alimony , Divorce , FAMILY LAW , Maryland Law

    Towson’s Trusted Law Firm

    One of the most common challenges in divorce proceedings is determining alimony. Alimony is a periodic (often monthly) payment made by one former spouse to the other so that the recipient spouse can become self-supporting following a divorce. Per Maryland’s equal rights amendment, either a husband or a wife in a marriage may be required by the court to pay alimony.

The amount, frequency and time horizon for alimony payments is determined on a case-by-case basis per the circumstances of each marriage and couple.
