How is alimony determined in Maryland?

There are designated statutory factors that a Maryland court must consider in determining whether to order a party to pay alimony, a few of which include:

  • The length of the marriage
  • The age and health of the parties
  • The ability of the party who is seeking alimony to be wholly or partly self-supporting
  • The reasons for the parties' estrangement and divorce
  • The standard of living established during the marriage
  • The length of time it would take one party to become self-supporting
  • The contributions, both monetary and non-monetary, of each party to the well-being of the family
  • The ability of the party from whom alimony is sought to meet his or her own financial needs while meeting the needs of the party seeking alimony
