Collaborative law offers a kinder, gentler divorce option

Many Maryland spouses have a very narrow conception of the divorce process. The end of a marriage is often likened to going to battle with one's spouse. While virtually everyone knows a friend or family member who has experienced a combative divorce, it is important to understand that this is not the only divorce model available to spouses. Collaborative law offers an alternative approach, and one that can make significant strides toward a less contentious divorce.

Child custody needs depend on child's age

One of the primary concerns of Maryland parents who go through divorces is the impact that the change will have on their children. Most will go to great lengths to ease the transition for their kids and will look for advice on how to help them adjust. According to many researchers, the manner in which parents approach divorce and child custody matters should be tailored toward the age group of the children involved.

Can surrogate mothers suffer within family law matters?

Many Maryland families struggle with infertility issues. Often, the chosen path to conceiving a child lies in the use of a carefully screened surrogate mother. This path is made possible by women who are able and willing to carry a child to term for another family. The transaction is both profitable for the surrogate and immensely rewarding for the intended parents. However, there are cases in which surrogates can face serious family law matters, as in a recent case that has made national headlines.

Facebook a factor within many divorce cases

Social media has changed the way that many Americans stay connected with friends and family. The ability to share information, photos and more allows people to share a great deal of their lives with those they care about. However, Facebook and other social media sites can also become a problem for many Maryland spouses who are going through a divorce.
