Waldorf Legal Separation Lawyer

It is not uncommon for states to have different names for the same legal topic. As people move around the country, these differences can lead to some confusion. One such topic is legal separation. A legal separation can occur if the parties have jointly contracted regarding what will occur concerning all aspects of their marriage, including their assets, marital property, their liabilities, custody of their children, child support, and their respective rights and responsibilities.

In Maryland, couples appearing in court have two options when considering divorce — either limited or absolute. A limited divorce is a tool that the court may use to provide financial support and handle custody of children. A lawyer at the Law Office of Marie Palmquist, LLC can work with you to learn more about your options.
