Maryland Alimony Attorney and Divorce Lawyers 

Are you going through a divorce in Maryland and seek Alimony?

If you're divorcing in Glen Burnie, Maryland, you might have concerns about providing or getting alimony (also known as spousal support). For assistance, contact our alimony lawyer at (410) 760-9433 for an initial consultation.

Zide Law Group is aware of every aspect the Maryland family courts take into account when determining whether to award alimony (spousal support).

Having a Maryland lawyer who knows how to present your case so that you get the right support is crucial if you're an ex-spouse seeking support.

We must examine your case if you are an ex-spouse who is being requested to pay support in order to ensure that you do not pay more than what is necessary by law.

Factors Considered In Determining Spousal Support

Unlike child support, alimony in Maryland is not determined by state guidelines. Rather, it hinges on specific factors within your own unique situation, including:

  • Length of the marriage
  • Potential of each spouse to generate income
  • A realistic time frame for one spouse to become self-sufficient or receive training to become employed
  • The standard of living established in the marriage
  • The physical and mental health of both spouses
  • The contributions of both spouses to the marriage

Each spouse's financial and non-financial contributions will be taken into account, including the fact that one spouse may have spent years or decades taking care of the home or the majority of the children. We can help you identify any significant aspects of your case that the court will take into account.

Our Alimony Attorney Will Work For Your To Find an Efficient Resolution

Alimony is frequently granted by Maryland courts on a temporary, rehabilitative, or permanent basis. Temporary alimony is only granted for the duration of the divorce process and is granted for shorter lengths of time, while rehabilitative alimony helps the recipient spouse get back on their feet. Indefinite spousal support, which is most frequently granted in long-term unions, has no set expiration date.

We will work with you to find a practical solution that upholds your interests. If you want alimony, we will fight for you to get what you need to be able to support yourself in the future. If you don't want to pay alimony, we will safeguard your rights so that you only make fair payments for a reasonable amount of time.
