An alimony award in Maryland is focused on enabling an economically dependent spouse to become self-supporting. There are a number of factors the courts consider in determining whether to award alimony, and the amount and duration thereof, including:

Including the following:

• Time necessary for the party seeking alimony to gain sufficient education
   or training to enable the party to find suitable employment
• Standard of living the parties established during the marriage
• Circumstances that contributed to the estrangement of the parties
• Physical and mental condition of each party
• Ability of the party from whom alimony is sought to meet that party's needs
   while meeting the needs of the party seeking alimony
• Financial needs and financial resources of each party
• Age of each party

Indefinite alimony may be awarded where the dependent spouse cannot be expected to become self-supporting because of age, illness, infirmity or disability.

I welcome the opportunity to talk with you and to discuss how I may be of service.
