Domestic Violence – When a family member is committing actual or threatened abuse against you or your kids, the number one goal is immediate safety. Get yourself and your children to a safe place and call the police or our family law office for help acquiring a protective order from the courts. A protective order can accomplish a lot of different objectives to keep the family safe, including ordering the abuser to vacate the residence and refrain from having any contact with the person or people outlined in the order. The court can order a person to surrender their firearms and even keep away from the family pet. The Fulton domestic violence lawyers at Weinberg & Schwartz, L.L.C., will help obtain a protective order that meets your specific needs and put together a strong case that justifies and proves the need for a lasting order. We are no strangers to the Howard County court system and can help you achieve your goals of safety and security quickly and successfully.
Adoption & Guardianship – Growing a family through adoption can be immensely fulfilling and satisfying. You are helping a child in need and giving him or her a loving home that the child’s biological parents cannot provide. Unfortunately, the process of completing an adoption can be lengthy, complicated and expensive. If something goes wrong along the way, it can be costly and heartbreaking to watch the adoption fall through. Our Fulton family law attorneys will meet with you from the outset and explain the adoption process in detail. We’ll make sure you are prepared for the application and review process, and that all documents and paperwork are properly drafted for a smooth and successful adoption. We can also guide you through alternatives to adoption that might better suit your needs, such as guardianship care. Call our Fulton adoption attorneys at 410-997-0203 to discuss the best legal path to help you raise a child in need in a safe and caring environment.
Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements – A prenuptial agreement is a contract made between two people in contemplation of marriage that becomes effective upon marriage. Typically, prenuptial agreements address matters such as the retention of separate property or division of marital property in case of death or divorce, as well as the payment of alimony. For instance, a prenuptial agreement might dictate how much alimony will be paid and for how long, or it might state that alimony will be waived after a marriage of a certain length. Other common aspects of prenuptial agreements include the making of a will or taking out a life insurance policy with specific beneficiary designations. Our Fulton prenuptial agreement lawyers can negotiate, draft or review an agreement that meets your needs in the event of separation, divorce or other incidents. Likewise, if one spouse acquired a business or other significant property during the marriage, we can help address and protect that property through valid and enforceable postnuptial agreements. Call our Fulton family law attorneys for help with prenuptial or postnuptial agreements, including litigation of unfair or improperly drafted agreements.
