Disputes like high-net divorce, child custody, property division, and alimony are governed by family law and usually require professional legal counsel in order to avoid conflicts and reach positive outcomes. Skillful and tenacious Baumohl Hamburg family lawyers provide powerful legal counsel by mediation, negotiation, arbitration, and litigation while remaining caring and understanding during these highly emotional times.

In the state of Maryland, in divorces with children involved, it is mandatory to resolve child custody matters before the divorce is legally finalized. Our family law lawyers can assist you in creating a parenting plan, which is required in any child custody case, as it contains all the details of legal custody, physical custody, visitation rights, etc. In addition, our team will provide professional legal assistance with the following aspects of child custody: client’s right advisory, court representation, negotiations, evidence gathering, and advocating for the child.
Marital Property Distribution
In Maryland, after the marriage has been legally ended, property division follows the rule of equitable distribution. This means that both spouses are eligible for fair, but not necessarily equal division. This can be quite a complex and lengthy process, especially if the agreement cannot be reached beforehand. For legal help with property distribution, thorough assets analysis, tracking hidden assets, and other divorce-related issues, contact our experienced Towson divorce attorneys. Our attorneys can help you reach a settlement that meets your requirements by employing unparalleled negotiation and mediation skills.
Alimony, also known as spousal or child support or maintenance, indicates a series of payments made to a former spouse following a divorce. It is available in both limited and absolute divorces. The exact amount of alimony can either be agreed upon in domestic agreements and parenting plans, or court ordered after a trial. Baumohl Hamburg offers effective negotiation and strong litigation advocacy for couples needing counsel on alimony matters in and outside the courtroom.
The most important part of the adoption process is to acquire powerful legal assistance, as matters like these can sometimes become very complex. If you live in Towson Maryland, and are considering adopting a child, we can help you with the necessary paperwork and all the legal requirements. With our expertise and guidance, we will make the adoption experience as smooth as possible for everyone involved.
An appeal is the act of challenging the judge’s decision. If you choose to do so, you have the right to appeal to a higher court about an unfavorable ruling. Appellate Law is another area of expertise for Baumohl Hamburg divorce lawyers. We will carefully review all the records to identify potential errors or unjust trial practices and utilize these findings to acquire a favorable outcome for you.

Our family law attorneys will protect your interests and wellbeing by providing caring and sympathetic legal advice.
A domestic agreement is a legal document serving to protect your rights and personal assets. It outlines responsibilities of parties in marriage or details of property division after the divorce. A domestic agreement can be a prenuptial agreement, separation agreement, and post-nuptial agreement. Our dedicated lawyers are skilled at preparation, negotiation, and creation of all types of domestic agreements.
High Net Divorce Cases
The difference between a conventional and high-asset divorce is in complexity and the value of all accumulated assets during the course of marriage, which are to be distributed upon marriage dissolution. Generally, over $1 million dollars is at stake in high-income divorce cases involving significant assets, private businesses, real estate, income, and debt to be divided between the spouses.

Is there a mandatory waiting period before I get legally divorced in Maryland?
Generally, yes, although it depends on particular and unique circumstances. For the majority of divorces, spouses are required to be at least one year separated before getting their marriage legally ended in the state of Maryland. However, in certain situations, such as cruelty, adultery, or excessively vicious conduct, you can file for divorce immediately, without the waiting period. In addition, if you and your spouse have completed a settlement agreement, you may obtain an absolute divorce without waiting.
What is equitable distribution of marital property?
If spouses cannot reach a mutual agreement on how the assets will be distributed upon divorce, then property is distributed equitably. The judge will divide marital assets fairly but not necessarily equally. If you need help with negotiating the division, turn to seasoned divorce attorneys at Baumohl Hamburg LLC, who will ensure your interests are protected and you are not deprived of anything you are entitled to.
What are the two types of divorces in Maryland?
There are two types of divorces: limited and absolute divorce.
- Limited divorce is a type of legal separation where spouses live separately and remain legally married until all important issues are settled such as child custody or alimony. Only after all aspects of the divorce are agreed upon, the couple can get officially divorced.
- Absolute divorce is the legal end or dissolution of a marriage, settling all important issues. An absolute divorce can be contested or uncontested. A contested divorce means that you and your spouse cannot agree on some of the basic issues, like property division, child support, or child custody. Uncontested divorce means that the couple has an agreement over the important issues and are free to remarry after they get an absolute divorce ruling.
What are the grounds for divorce in Maryland?
The grounds for divorce can be “fault” and “no-fault” in the state of Maryland. “Fault-based grounds for divorce” include adultery, desertion, cruelty or excessively vicious conduct, crime convictions (under certain circumstances), and insanity. “No fault grounds” include a 12-month separation period and mutual consent.
