Proactive Assistance from the Start of Marital Dissolution
At McNamee Hosea we help people with all types of family law issues, especially when a relationship breaks down and parties want to know their rights and explore their options. In Maryland, parties who seek to legally separate can help avoid costly conflict and litigation later on by negotiating and drafting a marital separation agreement when they first decide to end their union. A separation agreement details the rules and responsibilities that each spouse will abide by, which can help eliminate ambiguity and pave the way for an uncontested divorce process.
As part of our comprehensive family law and divorce representation at McNamee Hosea, our attorney will help people who want to pursue this option.
The Importance of Separation Agreements
Because a separation agreement is a binding legal document, it is in your best interest to have our skilled Maryland family law attorney at McNamee Hosea will help you carefully account for and negotiate all the details of your separation and ensure that your agreement complies with applicable Maryland divorce laws.
In the legal document for separation, we will help you address issues such as:
- Separation date
- Property division
- Use and possession of the family home and contribution to mortgage
- Child custody and visitation schedules
- Child support and dependency exemption issues
- Alimony and other spousal support
Additionally, because we are known as a "business owner's law firm," we will also make it a priority to help parties protect their business interests from the outset and avoid costly battles later involving appraisals, tax issues, splitting up a business or dividing control, as well as other complex and high-asset matters.
Our legal separation attorney will act as your advisor during the entire process and look out for your best interests. We will keep you informed of all the laws you need to be aware of and provide you with valuable advice when you need alternative and creative ways to resolve issues. We will help you negotiate issues that are important to you, and when an understanding cannot be reached we will aggressively protect you in court so that you will be able to move forward with confidence and a sense of security.
