What happens with your property when you divorce in Maryland

If you're getting divorced, then you're probably concerned about what's going to happen with your property once that happens.

For some, this is a fairly easy and straightforward arrangement to establish; however, this can also be a contentious and high conflict issue for others.

Guiding you through post-divorce child custody matters

The winter holidays are the time of year where many focus on togetherness and spending time with family. Unfortunately, when a family is no longer a unit because of divorce, this can create problems during the time of year that should be joyous and cheerful. Family law matters can complicate this time of year, especially when parents cannot come to an agreement with regards to who gets the children on which holiday. Thus, it is important for divorced parents to establish a custody arrangement and holiday schedule.

Importation considerations around child support

Maryland child support is an important part of any divorce and can also be an important consideration for unmarried parents to address. Child support provides for the financial support of children and can sometimes be worked out between parents, but the family law court is also able to help guide parents through the sometimes challenging process.

Anticipating property division during a Maryland divorce
