A Comprehensive Howard County Family Law Practice
Our office is available to represent you in your Howard County divorce or child custody dispute, but we are also here for you across the spectrum of Maryland family law matters. Contact Weinberg & Schwartz, L.L.C., today for help with any of the following:
Will, Power of Attorney & Living Will – Control your future through legal documents that establish how decisions will be made regarding your healthcare, financial and legal affairs, and how the distribution of your estate will be handled. Without planning for contingencies, the state decides these matters for you, or your loved ones are left struggling to figure out what decisions to make, often winding up in court when they have differing opinions. We’ll help you work through the difficult process of deciding these matters in advance and making sure they are clearly expressed in valid and binding legal instruments.
Adoption & Guardianship – We help parents, as well as other relatives and third-parties, navigate their options to provide a safe and nurturing environment for children in need of care. Many different paths to this goal exist under Maryland law. We’ll help find the choice that makes the most sense for the children and their caregivers, providing technical assistance and representation throughout the process for a smooth and successful outcome.
Domestic Violence Actions – Protective orders are powerful tools to put an immediate stop to threats and abuse from a spouse, former spouse, current or former boyfriend/girlfriend, or other relative or household member. Courts have broad powers to fashion protective orders to meet specific needs, and these orders can impact how judges rule on custody and support matters in a current or pending Maryland divorce. Let us help make sure you are protected and not mistreated in this vital area of family law.
Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements – Divorces occur with increasing frequency in Howard County and throughout the United States. They can be messy, expensive, hostile or emotionally exhausting, and there is only so much you can do to control the process if the person on the other side has a different agenda than you do. Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements let prospective or current spouses sit down together in calmer times and make rational, practical decisions that ensure each of them will be protected and not taken advantage of in the event the marriage doesn’t last. Our Columbia family lawyers can negotiate, draft or review an agreement on your behalf to make sure it meets your needs.
