Maryland & D.C. Divorce Attorneys
While divorce is difficult and emotional, it is important to take steps to ensure future security and peace of mind. All too often, people approach divorce as an emotional exercise. Whether your divorce is in Maryland or D.C., the courts treat divorce primarily as a financial exercise. That means the real area of contention is the division of marital property. The job of your D.C. or Maryland divorce attorney is to skillfully navigate the complexities of property division and protect your financial interests.
Each jurisdiction handles divorce proceedings in its own way. In Maryland, divorce is primarily process driven with much of the outcome dictated by case law. The main area of contention in a Maryland divorce are the marital assets and their valuation. As a Maryland-based firm, we are intimately familiar with family law and divorce in Maryland. We understand the strategy and tactics required for a Maryland divorce. We know how to protect your interests and assets.
In D.C. divorce is not as process driven, nor does case law provide the basis for guidance. A judge has more power to determine marital and non-marital property. A divorce in D.C. combines custody, property division, child support, and alimony into one proceeding. With everything combined and with the discretion of the judge playing a key role, your divorce lawyer must be intricately familiar with martial property laws in D.C. Because our sole focus is family law, we have the background, experience, and reputation to maximize your advantage.
Regardless of the jurisdiction, we are amongst the most experienced, dedicated, and prepared divorce lawyers you will retain. Our systems, personnel, and resources have been developed exclusively for the practice of family law including divorce, child support, custody, separation agreements, alimony, or other issues.
