Your first step in any domestic situation is setting up a consultation with a lawyer. We invite you to call 301-627-5500 or e-mail our office to arrange a consultation with one of our family law experts. We serve clients throughout Maryland from offices in Upper Marlboro and La Plata.

It is best to try to avoid any changes or agreements, gather all financial information you can and meet with a lawyer as soon as possible.

Your spouse may have rights to assets and retirement benefits depending on the length of your marriage and whether the assets are marital property (i.e. not obtained during the marriage or gifts from a third party or inheritance, or excluded by a valid agreement). Knowing what is protected and how to prove it is important.

Often governmental agencies, such as the Department of Social Services, volunteer groups such as shelters, can help in a domestic violence situation. Criminal laws may be applicable. You may also be entitled to a protective order. You should first seek advice to see which will help you in your situation.
