Providing Direction And Strategy During Divorce

The word "divorce" can spark many different types of emotions. To some, it can be emotional, strenuous and overwhelming. To others, it may mean a weight is lifted off your shoulders. Whether you are contemplating a divorce, separated from your spouse or have recently been served with papers, a divorce attorney at our firm will protect your rights and advise you of an effective strategy to take.

We are the experienced lawyers at the Law Office of Kevin L. Beard, P.A., in Catonsville, Maryland. Our firm serves families throughout the greater Baltimore area in all areas of family law, including divorce, child support, child custody, domestic violence and modifications. We also represent military members during divorce.

One Of The Biggest Issues During Divorce? Financial Security

In many situations, our clients' biggest concerns are financial security during and after a divorce. Our Catonsville divorce attorneys will conduct a thorough assessment of your financial situation and ensure that your rights are protected in regards to property division, including:

  • Pensions
  • Retirement accounts
  • Real property
  • Businesses
  • Savings/debt

Once an accurate determination of marital versus non-marital property is made, the judges in Maryland will consider multiple factors in order to determine an equitable division of property. They will examine who is at fault in the break-up, the length of the marriage, and contributions made to the family or household (monetary and non-monetary). We will assist you with all monetary aspects of your case, including any support obligations such as alimony or child support.

"Divorce is obviously emotional, and even the most ethically minded people have their moments in anger. I wanted to know that my attorney would stand on what is best for the family, especially the children, and would speak up when anger and frustration set in. I now know that I made the right choice. I could not be happier with the results. Kevin was able to get us to a fair and amicable place in the settlement, he achieved the goals that we originally set out to accomplish, and he gently pried me off the ceiling a few times when things got crazy" — Chip

Why Work With An Experienced Divorce Lawyer?

It is important to have an experienced lawyer who can articulate your needs, the state of your current family situation, and to ensure that your circumstances are fully and fairly considered by the court. At our firm, much of our practice is devoted to family law matters. Over the past 20 years, our attorneys have gained the experience, knowledge of the law and understanding to make certain your needs are met.

While settling in a divorce can reduce the financial toll, certain circumstances may call for advocacy in trial in order to secure your best interests. Our attorneys will strive to reach a favorable settlement outside the courtroom, if possible, but are prepared to aggressively represent you in litigation if necessary.
