Divorces are complicated matters whether both parties agree or not. We have helped couples in both military and non-military families work through complex issues including contested divorces. We also understand in many cases, divorces can be complex or high conflict and we will do our best to represent your best interests.
One of the most challenging issues likely to be faced during divorce involved in child custody. Both parents feel that it is best for the children to live with them. However, there are solutions that we can help you address, and we can make recommendations to the court as to why you are more suited to having physical custody.
In matters of child support, both DC and Maryland have specific guidelines designed to ensure both parents are contributing to the financial needs of their children. We will review those guidelines with you and determine if there are any special circumstances which warrant seeking additional support payments.
There is never a need to live in fear of a former partner or family member. We can help you take the steps necessary to ensure you are not living in fear or physical harm, emotional threats, or being subjected to harassment by a family member or former intimate partner.
If you have been falsely accused of committing an act of domestic violence against a family member or intimate partner, you have a very short period of time to prepare for the Final Protective Order hearing. The consequences of being found guilty of domestic violence can have an impact on your job, security clearances, and reputation. We can help you through the process, recommend your best course of action, and represent you at the hearing.
While some people are not comfortable with prenuptial agreements, there are cases that may necessitate this step. Even if you determine after marriage that an agreement should be put in place to protect you and your children in the event your relationship deteriorates, we can help. Whether you need an agreement drafted or review, you can count on our family law team for assistance.
