ZSTS is aware of every aspect the Maryland family courts take into account when determining whether to award spousal support.
Having a 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.
Unlike child support, spousal support in Maryland is not determined by state guidelines. Rather, it hinges on specific factors within your own unique situation, including:
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. Our family law lawyers can help you identify any significant aspects of your case that the court will take into account.
Spousal Support 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.
