The Limited Application
Income disparity alone is not usually enough for a judge to award alimony. You might earn $45,000 a year while your spouse earns $100,000, but that does not necessarily mean that you will receive alimony.
When alimony is awarded in Maryland, it is usually considered rehabilitative. This means that alimony payments continue long enough for the recipient spouse to obtain the training or education necessary to reenter the workforce. Alimony may also start out at a higher amount and grow smaller over time.
