Getting a divorce can be hard. Let us help you every step of the way.
When a marriage fails, couples separate, and divorce is inevitable, it is one of the most stressful times of a person’s life. Counsel from an experienced attorney can make all of the difference. The attorney that you choose should be an experienced trial attorney, but should also be able to settle the case, if that is possible.
Aside from the grounds for a divorce, most divorces involve child custody, child support, spousal support (alimony), and a marital property division. Those individuals without children or whose children are over eighteen years old, may still have to resolve spousal support and marital property issues.
Child custody concerns both physical custody, where the child(ren) live, and also legal custody, who makes decisions regarding the children.
Child support calculations involve determining each parent’s gross income and applying those incomes, as well as each parent’s custody with the child(ren), to the Maryland Child Support Guidelines.
Unlike child support, alimony (spousal support) requires the court to analyze a series of statutory factors rather than utilize formulaic guidelines to determine an award.
Regardless of how property is titled, it may still be subject to division in a divorce. Experienced attorneys can assist our clients with any issue regarding their divorce.
