More Than Divorce: Other Family Law Issues We Handle

Are you facing a legal matter that affects you or your family? At the Law Office of Dawn M. Green, we represent clients who are involved in a variety of family law matters. Not every family law conflict touches upon divorce, but require the same level of care and rigor as the dissolution of a marriage.

Family Law Issues With Which We Can Assist You

Beyond our robust record of success in divorce matters, our lawyers can provide guidance on the following topics:

  • Unmarried couples: Unmarried couples who end their relationship are often surprised to discover they have the same rights as married couples in Maryland with respect to child custody and child support. We explain your legal options and protect you and your children's best interests.
  • Prenuptial agreements: Many of today's couples are entering a second or third marriage or marrying for the first time later in life. Prenuptial agreements can protect children from prior marriages or your individual assets. Our firm can provide guidance and help you craft a "prenup" that can withstand stringent legal scrutiny.
  • Paternity disputes: Establishing who the biological father of a child is can answer critical medical and health questions. The mother of a child can ask his or her father for child support, and the father can petition for child custody or visitation rights. Paternity results may also be relevant to legal guardians for the child, such as grandparents.
  • Contribution by one spouse to the other for attorney fees: During divorce or other family law situations, legal costs should not deter you from doing what is right for your family. Our firm can help you determine if you qualify to petition to have your spouse contribute toward your portion of the legal expenses associated with the proceedings.

Our namesake attorney is experienced and an aggressive litigator. However, many family law matters can be solved through mediation or other forms of alternative dispute resolution, and our firm can provide advice and representation in those situations.
