Fair Child Custody and Visitation Agreements

We are committed to protecting the best interests of my clients’ children in any custody matter. I believe the happiness and overall well-being of a child must be protected throughout the divorce process and beyond. Should safety concerns be a factor, I will strongly advocate for placement in a healthy environment. There is no reason why a parent should have fear for their child’s safety.

A parent who is currently in a custody arrangement may wish to alter the arrangement to suit their needs. If the custodial parent wishes to relocate for work, remarriage, or another reason, he or she will be required to seek a modification of the original court order. At my firm, I represent custodial and non-custodial parents seeking or objecting to relocation. I can help you negotiate a fair and workable custody and visitation agreement or I can work to prevent the relocation of your child.

Divorce

In Maryland, almost every divorce is centered around one legal concept; Equitable distribution. Equitable distribution refers to the court’s division of marital property. “Equitable” isn’t necessarily “equal,” but rather fair, in the judge’s view. Maryland law requires this method. This is obviously simpler when a couple has few assets. However, marital assets may include real estate, personal property (like jewelry, furniture, personal belongings) and intangible property (like pension plans, 401K plans, investment accounts, bank accounts, etc.). We can give you an idea of how a court would treat various assets, and negotiate or litigate these issues for you.
