Baltimore County Alimony Lawyers
Alimony, also called spousal support, is money that one spouse pays to the other after they divorce. It is common in marriages where one spouse worked while the other assumed the child care responsibilities at home. No matter what side of a spousal support dispute you are on, working with an experienced Baltimore County alimony attorney can make a big difference in the outcome of your case.
Kreshtool & Kreshtool, P.A., is a longstanding family law firm dedicated to protecting the rights and interests of its clients. We represent individuals throughout the northwest Maryland area and have been helping secure favorable results for people since 1975.
Factors Used to Determine Spousal Support Amounts
Unlike child support, there are no specific guidelines set by the legislature when it comes to alimony. A number of subjective factors are used to determine the amount of spousal support payments, including:
• Length of the marriage
• Need versus ability to pay
• Each spouse’s earning capacity
• Ages and health of the spouses
• Conduct during the marriage
• Impact on the children
Dedicated to Resolving All Alimony Issues
With any family law dispute, the parties can try to settle issues on their own or through mediation. Traditional court involvement is also an option. However, our Owings Mills divorce attorneys emphasize the effectiveness of settling out of court. This method allows the parties flexibility in choosing the terms that fit their needs, and it often saves time and money.
We assist our clients in all alimony issues. Once support payments have been determined, it is still possible to seek an alimony modification if there is a substantial change in circumstances for either spouse. We are committed to resolving any alimony issues that may arise during or after a divorce.
