How spousal support is determined in Maryland

When a couple decides to end their marriage, they will normally go through the process of asset division, where their property is divided. Some couples may also end up with one person paying and the other receiving spousal support. This is normally determined by looking at the incomes of both spouses as well as the standard of living established during the marriage.

Cases of gray divorce continue to increase

Researchers at Bowling Green State University say that more couples over the age of 50 are getting divorced while the number of divorces in other age groups has remained flat or decreased. Some couples in Maryland might be interested as to why this is the case.

Study shows financial infidelity is a predictor of divorce

Protecting a business in divorce

Maryland entrepreneurs who are facing the end of a marriage might worry about how divorce will affect their business, especially if the company has been developed primarily during the marriage.

However, assumptions can undermine one's efforts, making it important to have an understanding of the process and possibilities even before seeking legal counsel for divorce action.
