Representing Couples In Same-Sex Marriage And Divorce
The legalization of same-sex marriage in Maryland has been a cause for celebration in the GLBT community. However, now that legal rights have been extended to same-sex couples, so too have the same legal issues and problems faced by traditionally married couples.
As a same-sex divorce attorney and founder of the Law Office of Kari Holm Fawcett, I help couples resolve the problems that arise when a relationship ends. I also provide legal advice to same-sex couples who are about to enter into a marriage as well as answer other questions surrounding same-sex marriage.
I represent people in Prince George’s County, Anne Arundel County and all other communities in Maryland from my offices in Bowie and Annapolis.
Aggressive, Results-Oriented Representation In Divorce Cases
A divorce often involves difficult decisions, some of which may have lifelong consequences. I am dedicated to providing you with the education and support you need in order to make informed decisions regarding any issues that may arise throughout the divorce process, including:
- Child custody and interstate custody disputes under the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Enforcement Act (UCCJEA)
- Child support
- Alimony/spousal support
- Enforcement of court orders and separation agreements
- Post-decree modifications
- Property division with expertise in high-asset divorces involving business valuations, military pensions and marital property awards
- Domestic violence protection and emergency temporary custody, modifications of custody/support and contempt of court
Same-sex marriages can be complex and certain issues must be considered if one spouse moves to another state, particularly when it comes to relocation and custody issues with children. When you come to my office in Bowie or Annapolis, I can help explore all of these unique issues and provide you with clear legal advice that sets forth all of your available options.
Experienced Legal Advice For Newly Married Couples
With 25 plus years of legal experience, I can help address many of the common issues that confront couples that are about to be married. For example, if you have significant assets, it is important to ensure that they are protected through the drafting of a prenuptial agreement. I can also provide you with advice and guidance for the rights and responsibilities you may or may not have when moving to another state. I look forward to putting my experience and skills to work for you.
