Spousal maintenance – alimony lawyers in Maryland
Even in uncontested divorces in Maryland, spousal maintenance may be awarded in a divorce or legal separation proceedings and may be subject to later modification or enforcement proceedings as well. Alimony is vital part of being able to move on after a divorce. Alimony is generally paid in installments over a period of time, (weekly or monthly, for example).
Spousal support is another term for alimony in Maryland.
Regardless of the term used Maryland, alimony is paid for a defined duration of time or until the death of one of the spouses or the remarriage of the recipient. What most people don’t realize is that alimony is taxable. The person paying the alimony deducts it as an above the line tax deduction. The person who receives alimony has to pay taxes on the amount of alimony received.
The Family Law Courts in Maryland have enormous discretion when determining the appropriate alimony award and the duration of the alimony award.
Due to this uncertainty, most Maryland divorce attorneys work hard towards trying to settle the issue of alimony without risking a trial on the issue of alimony. Our Maryland divorce lawyers will work to help you get spousal support and when necessary, defend an action for alimony.
