Alimony are payments by one spouse (or in a domestic partnership in DC by one partner) to the other for their support.
In Maryland and DC, alimony is not guaranteed. A court may award alimony or the parties may agree to the payment of alimony. Unlike child support, there are no guidelines that the court is required to consult to determine whether to award alimony, how much to award, or for what period of time. In order to determine alimony, the court looks at and weighs numerous factors.
