Apol Law LLC provides comprehensive Maryland trust and estate and family law services:
Alimony/Spousal Support: We can help you determine whether alimony is likely to be awarded in your divorce. If so, we will help make an appropriate determination.
Asset valuation: If either you or your spouse own substantial assets, it is important to hire a lawyer who is prepared to pursue an accurate valuation of those assets.
Child custody and custody modification: Preserving and protecting your relationship with your children is of paramount importance. We can help you figure out what will happen with your children during and after the divorce. We will support and advise you while you learn to co-parent during the divorce process and support a smooth transition to co-parenting once divorce is complete.
Child support: Apol Law LLC can help negotiate fair child support using Maryland's child support laws. Under Maryland law, child support is based on many factors, such as each parent's income and parenting time.
Collaborative Divorce: This process takes place outside of the courts and is appropriate for people who are determined to act in a respectful, open, and honest manner in working out the terms of the divorce.. You and your spouse each have his or her own collaboratively-trained attorney who works with them to explain issues while you work towards a durable mutual agreement.
Contested Divorce: In a contested divorce, the spouses cannot arrive at an agreement on one or more key issues in order to conclusively terminate their marriage and they must approach a court to adjudicate their dispute. We can represent you in court and present your case in a manner that allows the court to make a fair and complete determination.
Domestic violence and protective orders: If you have been abused by your spouse or significant other, or if you have been accused of domestic violence, we will ensure that your rights are protected.
Enforcement: If one spouse is not abiding by the terms of a divorce decree, we can take steps toward enforcement to ensure that you and your children are receiving what you are entitled to.
Name Change: Apol Law LLC has helped clients with adult and child name changes. You can change your name for any reason, as long as the change is not for any illegal or fraudulent purpose and the new name does not interfere with the rights of other.
Nontraditional families: Apol Law LLC covers the full range of family law issues, including child custody issues, affecting nontraditional families in Maryland.
Mediation: In many cases, mediation is a helpful process in which a neutral third party can help two parties to reach an agreement.
Marital property distribution: we can help you reach a fair distribution of any property acquired during the marriage.
Modifications: Life brings changes. When circumstances change, you may need to seek a modification to the terms of spousal support, child support, and child custody agreements.
Visitation: We help clients address all types of issues that arise with respect to child access, including modification and enforcement of visitation rights.
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements: If you are interested in entering into a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, we can help you understand your options.
Relocations: When you have to move, either due to a job, remarriage or any other reason, it may be necessary to modify your child custody and visitation plan. We can help you make plan that meets your needs and the needs of your children while protecting your relationship.
Separation agreements and uncontested divorce: If you and your spouse are interested in an uncontested divorce, we can help you negotiate a separation agreement.
