Meeting the Full Array of Family Law Needs for Families in Clarksville
Family law includes more than just handling divorces and related matters such as child custody disputes or modification of orders for support. Yes, you can count on Weinberg & Schwartz, L.L.C., to handle your Clarksville divorce or separation, be it highly contested or amicable. Additionally, we are a full-service family law firm handling a wide range of family law matters in Clarksville, so you can feel confident to call on our firm for practical advice, skilled and knowledgeable assistance, and effective advocacy throughout any of the following areas:
Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements – Prenuptial agreements help couples enter into marriage with guarantees of security in the event of death or divorce. For instance, a business owner can make sure his or her business is protected from interference or loss of control, while a homemaker can ensure he or she is adequately supported while raising the kids or transitioning to single life. Prenups can also help couples in blended families protect the inheritance rights or other interests of their children from a prior relationship. Our firm negotiates, drafts and reviews prenuptial agreements as well as postnuptial agreements created after the parties are already married.
Domestic Violence Actions – Violence among family members occurs millions of times every year in the U.S., often leaving lasting emotional scars and sometimes ending most tragically in death. You don’t have to wait until violence strikes you or your children. If you are in fear of imminent bodily harm or are being criminally stalked or harassed by a current or former spouse, girlfriend/boyfriend, relative or household member, or someone you have a child in common with, Maryland law allows you to seek a protective order that will keep that person away from you and your kids. Our Clarksville family lawyers will go to work right away to ensure you get immediate protection and support while also addressing your long-term safety and security.
Adoption & Guardianship – Due to a host of diverse circumstances, from drug and alcohol addiction or incarceration to active military duty, international travel, serious injury or illness, or death, parents are sometimes unavailable or incapable of raising their children and taking care of them, whether temporarily or permanently. Maryland law offers a variety of options for other family members or interested parties to take over the parenting role, care for the children, and have the legal authority to make medical decisions, deal with schooling, obtain benefits and handle other responsibilities associated with raising a child. Weinberg & Schwartz, L.L.C., helps biological parents or third parties in Clarksville explore their options and work through the best method to ensure children are appropriately cared for in a loving home.
Wills, Powers of Attorney, Living Wills – Wills do more than just direct the distribution of your estate after you are gone. The right set of estate planning documents also helps ensure that you are looked after during your lifetime and that decisions regarding your healthcare and financial affairs are made according to your wishes, even if you become incapacitated and can’t make or communicate those decisions on your own. Estate planning intersects family law in critical areas. For instance, after a divorce, some changes to your future property distribution happen automatically by operation of law, but they don’t go into effect immediately. Other changes might be needed or desired, yet they go unaddressed unless you have a knowledgeable attorney who is aware of these issues and brings them up to you. Our diligent Clarksville family law attorneys are here to draft, review or amend essential documents at any time, including before marriage or after a divorce, or following family births, deaths and other significant life events.
