English Soccer Star Claims Special Contribution in Divorce
Ryan Giggs will ask an English divorce court for more than 50% of millions that he has acquired during his marriage due to his special skills in football, or soccer as we call it in America. The argument failed last week in Randy Work’s “genius” claim.
We have something similar in Maryland which you can argue if you have made special contributions in your marriage.
In Maryland,when distributing marital property: the court must consider, among other factors;
— the contributions, monetary and nonmonetary, of each party to the well-being of the family. Section 8-205 (b)(1) of the Family Law Article of the Md. Code
— how and when specific marital property or interest in property was acquired, including the effort expended by each party in accumulating the marital property or the interest in property. Section 8-205 (b)(8) of the Family Law Article of the Md. Code
