One of the crucial aspect of divorce is alimony, also known as spousal support. Alimony is a monthly payment paid by one spouse to the lower-income spouse. This payment serves to help maintain the same level of living standards after the divorce. When the couple cannot agree on the details of the alimony, the case is taken to court that will decide on the specifics of spousal support. Things that will be taken into account include age, health, ability to self-support, how soon one can become self-sufficient, mental health condition, contributions made, spousal agreements, financial capacity, government assistance impact, and similar factors. A lot of these areas are left for interpretation by the judge. If your divorce or alimony dispute goes to court, our lawyers will represent you and your best interests before the judge in cases of high-net worth divorce alimony, rehabilitative alimony, temporary (pendente lite) alimony, and permanent (indefinite) alimony. Spousal support in Maryland can be terminated in cases of death, remarriage, and significant changes in circumstances.
Child custody and visitation rights can be quite a sensitive subject for everyone involved, and our lawyers understand that. We know that when there are children involved in a case of divorce, everyone’s emotions become overwhelming. It can be very hard to face the fact that you may not be able to see your kids on a daily basis. Our main priority is to assist you to accomplish an arrangement (also called a Parenting Plan) you are most comfortable with and which promotes a healthy relationship between a parent and a child.

Domestic violence is any type of abusive behavior against a family member (spouse, former spouse, a person you share a child with, a person you are/were in a romantic relationship with, current or former cohabitant, etc.). Domestic abuse is defined as displaying power and control through abusive behavior (physical, sexual, emotional, economic, mental, psychological), stalking, manipulation, coercive control, isolation by movement and communication restriction, harassment, intimidating, deprivation of basic necessities and similar violent behaviors. Any evidence of abusive behavior will have a major impact on the conclusion of divorce. The judge has the authority to rule specific issues in favor of the spouse who was a victim of domestic abuse in marriage. The spouse who was the abuser will also have a chance to present evidence before the judge. Baumohl Hamburg seasoned attorneys provide comprehensive services in domestic violence cases such as filing charges, protective orders, restraining orders, peace orders, and court representation.
Marital Property Division
Before getting officially divorced, in Maryland, you first have to reach an agreement with your spouse about how the marital property will be divided. Marital property are all the assets that you two, as a couple, have accumulated during the course of marriage. Marital property includes real estate, vehicles, bank accounts (brokerage, investment funds, retirement funds, stock funds), personal property, collections, pension funds, etc. And since Maryland is an equitable state, this means that marital property will be divided so that it is fair towards both parties involved. Before making a decision, the judge will take into account contributions, financial situation, marriage duration, age, and so on.
