Will I Have to Pay Alimony?
September 25, 2023 – Ellen L. Lee
It depends. Once we learn the facts of your situation, we can provide you with a better assessment of the alimony issue. Alimony is also referred to as spousal support or maintenance. To determine whether you will be ordered to pay alimony, Maryland courts consider such factors as:
- The income and property of each spouse
- The needs of each spouse
- The present and future earning capacity of the spouse seeking support
- The standard of living established during the marriage
- The length of the marriage
