Divorce may end a marriage but needn’t bring happiness to a halt

Maryland married couples are certainly not immune to the many challenges and problems faced by other couples. When pursuing divorce, it's not uncommon to be concerned about one's future, how children will adapt and how finances will change. It's also natural to worry how well one will fare as a single person. A key factor to successfully overcoming the challenges of divorce lies in knowing what resources are available and where to turn for help when needed.

You should consider the benefits offered by prenuptial agreements

Preparing for marriage is an exciting time for a Maryland couple. In the midst of the excitement, however, it is beneficial to think about protecting future interests. One of the ways that some couples do this is through prenuptial agreements. While it is not a romantic thought, it is smart to consider what will happen to your property and assets in a divorce. 

High asset divorce does not always mean equal property division

Maryland has its share of high-end divorces that require dividing property and allocating assets on a large-scale basis. Sometimes, the high asset divorce is a matter of public scrutiny due to intensive press coverage. Many such breakups, however, go essentially unreported due to the low-key nature of the wealth and personalities involved.

Child custody case could lead to jail time for this mother

Most Maryland residents are aware that divorce and custody cases often take a turn for the worse. Even so, most people assume that their own child custody case will not follow a similar path. Far too many parents are shocked or blindsided when their spouse decides to take an aggressive stance on an issue that was never presented as a problem throughout the marriage. An example is found in a West Coast case in which a mother could spend time behind bars for refusing to comply with a court order.

State heard child custody cases in separate court

There are certain situations that create a reaction within the community, and some to changes in the way the a local court system functions. An example is found in the state other than Maryland that up until recently heard child custody cases involving unwed parents in a different court from cases involving married parties. Public outrage and legal challenges led to a change in how cases are heard in that particular jurisdiction.
