Family Law Lawyers in Annapolis


When couples marry, their lives are merged together. They often combine their finances, acquire assets and build families. Divorce is the process by which that merger is dissolved, and the family unit and all of its assets are separated and divided.


When parents make the decision to separate, they are faced with the difficult responsibility of dividing parenting tasks and physical time with their children. Careful attention to detail is required to prevent unnecessary disputes in the future and ensure that the children's best interests are met.

Prenuptial Agreements

A prenuptial agreement is a written contract made between two people prior to their marriage. Among other things, prenuptial agreements can protect individual assets, define ownership of assets acquired during the marriage and/or resolve support and property issues arising from a separation or divorce. Prenuptial agreements can be an invaluable tool to ensure that any future dissolution of the marriage is achieved with minimal conflict.

Property Settlement Agreements (aka Separation Agreements)

Unlike prenuptial agreements which are entered into before marriage, property settlement agreements, often referred to as separation agreements, are entered into during the marriage, in contemplation of a separation or divorce. These agreements are intended to resolve all legal issues arising from the parties' marriage and subsequent separation.
