Bowie Alimony Attorneys

Alimony or spousal support is not an issue in every divorce, but it is a crucial issue for some. When one former spouse has steady income and the other does not, the two sides must either come to an agreement or have the court make that decision for them. At Reinstein, Glackin, Patterson & Herriott, LLC, we assist clients in arriving at a decision that advances their best interests.

Maryland Spousal Support Lawyers

Under Maryland's equal rights amendment, either husband or wife may be asked to pay alimony, up until the divorce as well as afterward. There are three kinds of alimony/spousal support in Maryland:

Alimony pendente lite: This is an award of support for the period between filing for divorce until the issuance of the divorce decree. Alimony while the parties are in litigation awaiting the final divorce trial.

Indefinite alimony: This is support awarded at the time of the divorce for an unspecified length of time. It is typically granted when the recipient is unable to support himself or herself because of age, disease or disability.

Rehabilitative alimony: This is the most common form of alimony payment. It is awarded for a finite period of time, and its purpose is to give the recipient a sufficient amount of time to obtain or restore the necessary skills or education to become self-supporting.
