Legal Options In A Maryland Divorce

Divorce is a stressful and often complicated process. It can also be expensive. Frequently, the parties are unable to communicate and this can sometimes make divorce cases difficult to resolve.

Issues pertaining to child custody, visitation, use and possession of the family home or personal property, rehabilitative and/or permanent alimony, and division of pension(s) and retirement benefits, as well as the division of marital property, to name but a few, can at times be complex. It is important to have an experienced lawyer on your side who can provide you with sound legal advice and help protect your rights during this most difficult period.

When Children Are Involved

The courts will carefully scrutinize what is in the children's best interests before making a decision awarding their care and custody to either parent in a contested custody case. The court will also review and evaluate a number of key factors in making a final decision prior to awarding either party sole custody should joint custody not be in the child or children's best interests.

The court may also appoint a Best Interest Attorney (BIA) to represent the best interests of the child or children and may divide the costs of the BIA between the parties.

Separation Agreements That Resolve The Issues

It is always preferable and less costly when divorcing couples are able to cooperate with each other. The law firm of Richard L. Healy, P.C., has extensive experience in the negotiation, preparation and drafting of legally binding separation agreements that frequently resolve all of the marital property issues confronting divorcing couples as well as custody and visitation.

However, when parties are unable to resolve their disputes amicably and litigation becomes necessary, it is important to seek out the assistance of an experienced attorney.
