Skilled Advocacy To Resolve Alimony Disputes

While the divorce process can be stressful and daunting, it is important to look forward to a stable and happier post-divorce future. In our current economy and with recent changes in our overall culture in the United States, alimony is not necessarily a given in divorce. Contrary to common belief, women and men alike may be ordered to pay alimony. When there is a large disparity in incomes between divorcing spouses or in high-asset households, alimony determination can be complex.

Temporary Alimony

I am family law attorney Greg Abney. At Abney at Law, P.C., in Rockville, Maryland, I provide detailed and personalized guidance to clients who are seeking or challenging a request for alimony. In cases where alimony is ordered, courts generally prefer to award spousal support on a temporary basis. In these situations, the alimony is intended to give the spouse time to work toward increasing his or her own income and become "self-supporting."

Indefinite Alimony

In some situations, the court may order indefinite alimony, which is more permanent than temporary alimony. I will evaluate your unique circumstances and explain what options you may have concerning spousal maintenance. I provide aggressive advocacy to protect the rights of my clients.

Personal Service Dedicated To Meaningful Results

I work one on one with clients to achieve the most favorable results. I do the hard work to protect my clients' rights in negotiations, mediation and — when necessary — trial. You deserve to have a lawyer in your corner who cares about the outcome of your case. Your future depends on it. I am that attorney.
