About Family Law
When you decide to end a marriage but cannot come to an agreement regarding the terms of a divorce, then litigation usually ensues in order to settle the matters in question. Each party is typically
represented by a family law attorney and in cases where child custody is being challenged the court may appoint an attorney to represent the children’s interests as well.
Divorce litigation is handled in family court, where each matter is heard and decided on by a judge. The judge makes the final decisions regarding all matters in question.
Knowledge, experience and confidence with Maryland divorce laws
Your attorney should be your strong advocate and your guide through the legal system. That requires experience and knowledge of the system to be your best guide and counsel.
