Divorce

Divorce

Divorce is difficult, to say the least. You have to deal with the division of assets and make preparations for your children at the same time you’re dealing with extreme emotional turmoil. The process can be long and convoluted, especially if you don’t have the help of a knowledgeable attorney.

Depending on the situation, you need a lawyer who knows when to fight and knows when to assist negotiating a settlement that benefits your family.  Whatever your divorce journey may look like, without legal help on your side, you are less likely to get what you deserve, set yourself up for the future, protect your loved ones and minimize relationship damage along the way. That’s where The Law Offices of Alan Solomon comes in. With our help, you can achieve your divorce goals in the minimal amount of time, in the most amicable possible way.

Why Do You Need a Divorce Attorney?

Whether you need divorce mediation or collaboration, your our experienced attorneys can help you get it. We have seen the full range of situations and can tailor our personal experiences and expertise to your individual case. If your divorce is amicable, you have a better chance of settling quickly out of court with a lawyer on your side. If it’s a more challenging situation, bound for the courtroom, you will get the best possible preparation for litigation beforehand.  The Law offices of Alan Solomon are extensively knowledgeable in the following areas:

  • Property Distribution- Maryland divides assets according to equitable distribution.  Equitable does not mean equal.  If your contribution exceeds that of your spouse, you need to speak with a lawyer before you simply accept half of all assets.
  • Alimony-  This is the most challenging issue as two households are always more expensive than one.  Courts look at many factors when issuing an alimony award and there is no formula to apply.  You need a seasoned lawyer to present the facts in a way that provides the best outcome.
  • Marital Real Property- If you have custody of a minor child in your home a Court may allow three years to sell while you and your children remain in the home. This is called Use and Possession.  It is not always awarded but can be under the right circumstances.
  • Attorney’s Fees- Sometimes one spouse has all the marital assets. Courts can order one party to pay the other sides legal fees.  This determination can be made by a Court in the early stages of a proceeding which allows you to fully litigate your divorce.
  • Separation Agreements- Making an agreement seems easy if things are going well at the time but you must consider the future. Infant children have different needs than teenagers.  It is important to draft an agreement that stands the test of time.  Otherwise, you will need to see a lawyer whenever circumstances change.

You can call any time to find out more about how a consultation works and where to meet.
