DC & Maryland Separation Attorneys
Negotiation or litigation to arrive at a final divorce agreement is time consuming. Prior to the final divorce, issues must be addressed that govern the separation and protect marital property. Use of the family home, protection of financial assets, temporary child custody, child visitation, and maintenance claims all must be resolved. A separation agreement is also necessary to avoid claims of abandonment or other malfeasance which can harm you in the divorce. We help clients negotiate and enforce a separation agreement that protects their interests and establishes the framework for support prior to the final divorce.
