If you think you need a divorce in Maryland, your first step is that you need to contact an experienced divorce attorney. An attorney is going to know the laws when it comes to child custody, child visitation, and child support. In addition, they are going to know whether or not you are eligible for alimony or whether or not you are going to have to pay your former spouse alimony.
Going into major life decisions such as a divorce and trying to make decisions on your own or Googling what to do in a divorce is not the right step here. If you are seriously considering divorce, you need to sit down with an attorney and talk about your issues, talk about property distribution, talk about alimony, talk about child support and talk about child custody. After you do that, you’ll be much better equipped to know what you’re eligible for in the divorce, what your legal rights are, and what the best way to pursue your divorce options is.
