Domestic Violence

Skilled, Understanding Representation

Domestic violence is a terrible reality for many families. If you are the victim of domestic violence or if you have been accused of domestic violence, experienced legal representation can help protect your rights. I am attorney Alan Solomon, and I represent both victims of domestic violence and alleged abusers. 

Because I represent people during their divorces and people charged with crimes, I understand the effects domestic violence can have on divorce proceedings and the serious consequences an alleged abuser faces.

If you have been the victim of domestic abuse or were accused of domestic abuse, it is important that you contact a skilled lawyer who will take time to sit down with you and listen to you. At my law firm, you will receive individual attention, so that you understand the decisions you are making and the effects they could have on your divorce or criminal record.  You can lose custody of your children by admitting to domestic violence.

Protection Orders

I can also help you determine if you need or can oppose a civil protection order or a temporary protection order. A protection order can grant immediate protection from a spouse, partner or family member who has assaulted you or threatened assault, and it can last up to a year.  You can be ordered to vacate you house for that time, pay support and even lose the chance of having meaningful access to your children.  

If you are in need of a protection order, contact an experienced domestic violence attorney at 301.579.3541.

Prenuptial Agreements

Prenuptial Agreements and Wedding Planning

Most couples do not view a prenuptial agreement with the same excitement as they see other aspects involved in planning a wedding. People often avoid prenuptial agreements because they do not want to plan for their divorce, they are not planning on getting divorced and it can be a very difficult conversation to have.

However, a prenuptial agreement can save you time and money. I am attorney Alan Solomon, and I can help you prepare for your future, no matter what happens. While no couple planning their wedding believes they are getting divorced, the truth is many couples do divorce. The couples who have a prenuptial agreement can save a lot of time and money, whereas many couples who do not have a premarital agreement wish they did. 

Why You Should Consider a Prenuptial Agreement

Maybe this is not your first marriage, and you want to ensure your property supports your children. Perhaps you owned a house or business before you got married, or you are entering the marriage with substantially more assets than your spouse-to-be. With more than 18 years of experience in
divorce cases
, I can anticipate many issues before they happen, which will save you time and money if you divorce later. Furthermore, with a prenuptial agreement in place, you could protect yourself from some of the emotional stress associated with divorce litigation.

Montgomery County and Washington, D.C., Postnuptial Agreement Attorney

If you are already married, but you and your spouse did not sign a prenuptial agreement, you can still create an agreement, commonly called a postnuptial agreement. If you did create a prenuptial agreement, you can always revise it after your marriage.

Child Custody

Serving Your Child Custody Needs

The effects a divorce has on the time parents can spend with their children may be the most difficult aspect of a divorce. Parents are worried about how to maintain the relationship they have with their children and hope their children will maintain stability in their lives. With such concerns, it is critical that parents have experienced counsel to represent their best interests and protect their relationships with their children.

I am Alan Solomon, a BethesdaMaryland, child custody lawyer. As a solo practitioner, serving western Maryland and WashingtonD.C., I will listen to your story and your needs to be able to help you. With more than 18 years of experience, I will guide you through the child custody and visitation process, helping you create a parenting plan that works for your unique situation.

Simplifying Your Divorce

My goal is to help you resolve your issues and concerns with your spouse, through negotiation and other alternative dispute resolution (ADR) measures. If you and your spouse reach an agreement without court intervention, you are more likely to come up with a long-term, effective agreement. Furthermore, you could avoid some of the financial and emotional costs of litigation, which can also lengthen the divorce process. Going through a divorce can be difficult without adding any more burdens.

If your child custody dispute requires court intervention, I have extensive courtroom experience and will guide you through the process. I pride myself on being straightforward and will do what I can to resolve your dispute efficiently. If you are looking for an experienced, no-nonsense WashingtonD.C., and Bethesda child custody attorney, contact me for a free initial phone consultation at 301.579.3541.
