Rehabilitative or Indefinite Alimony?

Rehabilitative or fixed-term alimony is favored in Maryland as noted by the Court of Special Appeals in the Whittington case decided in January of this year.

There are two exceptions set forth in Section 11-601(c)(1) and (2) of the Family Law Article of the Maryland Code.

The first is exceptional circumstances due to age, illness, infirmity or disability so that the person seeking alimony cannot be self-supporting.

The other exception is “unconscionable disparity” in the lifestyles of the parties after the divorce.
