Q

How Does a Court Determine Who Gets Custody of a Child?

In deciding custody, Maryland law requires courts to focus on the best interests of the child and not the interests of the parents. Factors the court weighs to determine the best interests of the child include:

  • The mental and physical health of the child
  • The safety and stability of each spouse’s home and surroundings
  • The willingness of each parent to encourage a close relationship between the child and the other parent
  • The relative economic positions of the parents
  • The wishes of the child
  • The wishes of the parents
  • The child’s relationship with parents, siblings and other significant people
  • The child’s adjustment to home, school and community
  • Physical violence or threat of violence by a parent, whether directed at the child or someone else
  • Abuse, whether directed at the child or someone else

Q

If Our Largest Asset Is a Business, Who Will Get It?

When a business is a marital asset, we hire appraisers, valuation experts, accountants and other professionals to determine the true value of the business. You should not rely on your spouse’s assertions about the value of the business. You need a valuation from a neutral professional.

Q

Will I Lose Everything to My Spouse?

No, you will not lose everything to your spouse. In determining division of property, the courts look at numerous factors, such as the earning power of each spouse, the length of the marriage, and the assets each spouse brought into the marriage. Maryland courts try to issue divorce decrees that are fair. Our attorney is skilled at effectively preparing and presenting the evidence to seek your fair share.

Q

What If My Spouse Is Hiding Money, Income or Assets?

We will work to uncover hidden money, income or assets using all means legally available, including sending subpoenas to employers, businesses, banks and close friends or relatives of a spouse. When appropriate, we will work with forensic accountants, private investigators and other professionals to help trace and locate the hidden assets.
