Divorce Attorney in Annapolis, Maryland
Divorce is never easy, even when both partners agree that it’s the right decision. The dissolution of a marriage involves crucial decisions about how your shared property will be divided and how your children will be cared for.
At the Law Offices Michael S. Rosofsky, our goal is to help clients in the Annapolis area and throughout Maryland get through their divorces without added stress or difficulty. Our attorney's knowledge of Maryland laws and practices enables our office to help you with all aspects of divorce and address any questions or concerns you may have.
Committed Advocate Strives for Fair Support and Property Arrangements
At the Law Offices Michael S. Rosofsky, we will work to develop the best possible solutions for all aspects of your divorce, which may include:
Child custody and visitation — Court orders determine where your child will live, how parenting time will be split, and to what degree each parent gets to make decisions about their child’s life. Our attorney will work to ensure your parental rights are protected while advocating for your children’s welfare.
Child support — A number of factors are used to calculate child support payments, from each parent’s income to each child’s particular needs. We will seek an order that’s fair to all parties.
Distribution of property — The division of your home and other assets often depends on whether the property is owned by a couple or just one spouse. We will help you seek a fair division of the marital estate.
Division of marital debts — Both spouses may be accountable for debts accrued by the couple, or one partner may be found to be more responsible.
Spousal support and temporary support — Whether you seek spousal support, also known as alimony, on a permanent or temporary basis, or must pay it, our lawyer will seek a fair determination so that divorce doesn’t leave you financially strapped.
With commitment and conviction, our divorce attorney will argue for fair arrangements, always keeping in mind your best interests and those of your children.
Handling Mediation and Litigation
The course that your divorce takes will depend on your circumstances. Most couples will first try to work things out in mediation rather than opting to let a judge decide the terms of their divorce.
Mediation allows you and your spouse to negotiate a divorce settlement in a structured setting through a trained facilitator, fostering cooperation and removing the unpredictability and uncertainty of litigation. It also often reduces the time and cost of divorce and puts the decisions in your hands.
If litigation is necessary to reach just and equitable resolutions to alimony, custody, and other matters, our family law attorney is prepared to advocate on your behalf in court in pursuit of the most favorable outcome.
