Our Boutique Family Firm Handles All Types of Divorce in Maryland

Absolute divorce resolves all issues involved in a divorce and ends in a legal dissolution of the marriage. It allows the former spouses to remarry. Note that limited divorce is no longer offered in Maryland, which is now also a no-fault divorce state. Nevertheless, the elements of fault leading to your divorce may be pertinent to various important decisions involved in your divorce case.

The three grounds for divorce in Maryland include: irreconcilable differences, mutual consent, or six months living their lives separately and apart (though perhaps in the same residence).

We provide guidance and support to a wide range of couples, including military couples, same-sex, and other LGBTQ couples, with divorce through litigation or mediation. Regardless of your unique situation, we are prepared to guide you through this process with your concerns and goals in mind. We encourage you to contact us today to schedule a consultation so we can discuss and assess your circumstances and options.

The Focus is on The Child’s Interests in Maryland Child Custody and Child Support Cases

During or after the divorce process, you may face contentious and challenging child custody, child support, and visitation arrangement issues, and we are here to support you while seeking to set a positive trajectory for your child’s family relationships in the future. The child’s interests are the determining factor in these decisions, and we keep this focus in mind when guiding you through your case.

We also help people in Rockville, Annapolis, and throughout Maryland who want to modify custody terms.

Maryland’s Courts Will Divide The Property If You and Your Spouse Can’t Agree on Property Division

When divorcing parties in Maryland are unable to reach an agreement, the court takes on the responsibility of ensuring an equitable distribution of assets and debts. The value of the assets, financial circumstances of the parties, and the acquisition timeline are important factors when determining property division and distribution in a divorce. At the Law Offices of Ellen L. Lee, we will guide you to seek agreement with your spouse on these matters, helping you make informed decisions in line with your interests.

Spousal Support in Maryland Can Be Set By Agreement of The Spouses or By The Decision of The Court — We Can Help

Divorcing parties do not always agree on the amount of spousal support — commonly known as alimony. When you can’t agree on alimony in Maryland, the court will decide. The general goal of spousal support is to help the spouse who is requesting alimony to become self-supporting. The courts will consider various factors, including the relative incomes of the spouses, the couple’s standard of living before the divorce, the length of the marriage, the requesting spouse’s level of education, and that spouse’s ability to become self-supporting.

Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements are Forward-Thinking Contingency Plans Seeking To Reduce Conflict

Before saying “I do,” couples have the opportunity to proactively address what would happen in the unfortunate event of divorce or the passing of a spouse. These can include property division, spousal support, and child custody. By establishing a prenuptial agreement, these couples can act to minimize potential conflicts down the road.

For couples who have already married, a postnuptial agreement is a similar tool to prevent future conflicts if divorce or death of a spouse would come to pass.
