Going through a divorce is a time when you will be required to make stressful decisions that affect the lives of you and your children. You will need to hire a compassionate and knowledgeable Maryland family law attorney to make sure you are aware of all the options that you have to choose from. When your options and the legal process have been explained in plain language, you will be able to make decisions with the best interests of you and your family in mind.
At Gardner Law Firm, P.C, the best interests of you and your family are always the number one priority. If after all of your options are exhausted, you and your ex-spouse cannot come to an agreement regarding critical decisions such as the division of property, spousal and child support, and child custody and visitation, a trial may be your best option. Attorney David C. Gardner has the knowledge and skill to work toward the best resolution for you. Hopefully, a trial will not be necessary and it will be possible to negotiate an acceptable arrangement. Even in highly contested family law cases, your lawyer should always try to reach an amicable result. Negotiation can greatly reduce the legal costs incurred and improves the chances of both sides adhering to the agreement going forward. However, in the event that negotiation is not successful, Gardner Law Firm can aggressively litigate the matter on your behalf.
In most situations, a married couple wishing to divorce must be separated for at least one year. Each case is different and your lawyer will listen carefully and patiently to your needs before recommending the best course of action to take. Gardner Law Firm has more than 35 years of family law experience and has earned an exceptional reputation, as well as a successful track record.
