All You Need to Know About Alimony

It’s All About Alimony

Divorce is tricky. But finalized divorce can be trickier, especially when your ex-spouse files for an alimony claim. Alimony or spousal support is a form of monetary support that one spouse gives to the other for a court-specified timeframe. The court usually awards support during the divorce process.

However, alimony claims can still be filed after the divorce has been finalized. But no matter the circumstances, it is possible that one spouse would need ongoing financial support from the other and such legal matters as to be discussed in the presence of an attorney.

Your lawyer in Maryland will help you determine the type of support to seek in court. There are three types of alimony that you can be granted of:

  1. Alimony pendente lite is a temporary alimony ordered by the court while the divorce is still pending. This is to make sure that both parties can maintain his/her standard of living during the divorce process.
  2. Rehabilitative alimony is suitable in cases to help the low-earning spouse become self-supportive by acquiring further training or education for employment. It can be ordered until the recipient becomes self-sufficient to care for themselves including their child, if any.
  3. Indefinite alimony or permanent spousal support is awarded if the supported spouse is not capable of becoming fully independent and self-supporting due to age, illness, infirmity or disability. A recipient can also be entitled with rehabilitative alimony if he/she is handicapped or has never worked but is able to raise his/her children and take care of their home.
