Rockville doctor owes $100K in child support, loses license


Many parents fail to pay child support because they believe the penalties are minor. Most of the time, they avoid jail because it's useless to imprison someone instead of allowing that person to make money by working. However, the stakes are higher if someone has a professional license - such as a doctor - and the state revokes it. That was what recently happened to a Maryland doctor after he racked up more than $100,000 in delinquent payments.

I earn less than my ex-wife. Will I still owe her alimony?


Gone are the times when the husband was almost always forced to pay the ex-wife alimony in a divorce. Family roles have changed for many Maryland spouses. In many households, the husband stays at home with the children, while the wife is the one working and financially supporting the family. Because of this, alimony is not always awarded to women. In fact, spousal support is not even an issue in some marriages. It is awarded based on various factors.

Child custody often leads to dispute in military divorces


With so many military bases in Maryland, it's not uncommon for many divorces in the state to involve a spouse in the armed forces. A military divorce is a battle that most servicemen and women are not prepared for, especially when it comes to child custody. If there are children involved in a military divorce, judges tend to be unsympathetic and instead lean toward the parent who is not deployed and away from the children for months at a time.

Types of property involved in a high asset divorce


No matter how long a Maryland couple has been married, a divorce can still be emotionally draining. Divorces, however, are often easier when the couple has only been married a year or two. After this short amount of time, most couples do not accumulate much in terms of assets. They probably do not have kids together or even a house. However, when couples have been married for decades and suddenly divorce, things become more complicated. A lot can happen in that length of time. Couples may have started businesses, or accumulated collectibles and other assets of value. There are many types of property potentially involved in a high asset divorce.
