The Lebowitz Law Firm Assists with Legal Separation in Maryland
Mr. Lebowitz can help you assess your options
In certain situations, a couple may wish to live apart but they either do not want to terminate their marriage or cannot do so yet under the law. In Maryland, this is called a legal separation. Essentially, a legal separation is a court-approved contract between spouses that outlines how marital responsibilities will be divided. The agreement can address many issues, including:
- Asset and property division. Dividing the marital property can be an emotional and complicated process. A knowledgeable attorney can help you make this process easier.
- Spousal support. Depending on the financial circumstances of each spouse, support may be negotiated or ordered by a judge.
- Child custody. Determining where children should live, who should make decisions about their lives, and when relatives can visit them is often an emotionally difficult process. We work to help you achieve an outcome that is favorable for you and your children.
- Child support. Both parents are expected to contribute to the costs of raising their children. This often means that one parent must make payments to the other. We help to negotiate payments that are fair and beneficial to the children.
The Lebowitz Law Firm can help you negotiate a fair separation agreement or, if necessary, litigate these issues in court. We help our clients make the right choices for their individual circumstances.
