Areas of Family Law We Practice
Family law can be complex, and when you need help the most an attorney can provide you with guidance, reminding you that these situations are stressful but that you are not alone. Our firm can handle the following areas of family law for you and your loved ones:
When parents are ready to adopt a child in need, there are many questions and sometimes too few answers. Our attorneys can help you in:
- Adoptions by a step-parent, foster parent or relative
- Contested adoption
- International adoption
- Private adoptions
Each type of adoption has obstacles unique to the circumstance. Goldberg Finnegan is prepared to make the child’s transition into your home as worry-free as possible.
Unfortunately, divorces can end with one party refusing to pay the amount of child support determined by the conditions of the divorce. When this happens, a lawyer may be necessary for enforce payments for necessities like:
In some cases, your spouse may be refusing an amount that you feel is fair and necessary to care for the child or children. Our firm can help you fight for a higher amount or enforce back payments if your spouse is not up-to-date with child support.
Disputes over child custody can be one of the most challenging and painful aspects of a divorce. Both parents may feel they are more fitted to care for the child or children, but the court will need to determine whether sole or joint custody is issued to one or both parents. Some of the factors utilized in determining custody include:
- Age, health and gender of the parent
- Character and reputation of the parent
- Child’s preference
- Geographic location of the parent
- Parental desire
- Parental fitness
Goldberg Finnegan can help you secure the best family situation for your child, and have the skills to fight for your parental rights in court.
The dissolution of a marriage can be one of the most traumatizing events in a person’s life. Besides the heartache of a lost partnership, divorce brings seemingly endless questions about child custody, belongings and property that is jointly owned, and other difficult matters. If you are seeking a divorce, an attorney can help you through this difficult transition. The following are grounds for divorce in the state of Maryland:
- Abusive conduct
- Criminal conviction
- Voluntary separation
Maintaining civility is critical to a successful and simplified divorce, and it is recommended that both parties retain legal counsel to facilitate the process.
