Skilled Help In Divorce And Family Law

There are few things that touch us more deeply than our relationship with our family. When your family issues become legal issues, you need help from a lawyer who understands what you are going through and has the skill and experience to help.

At my law office, The Law Firm of Sharon M. Donahue, P.A., in Ocean City, Maryland, I help men and women with many issues in family law. I defend my clients' rights, protect their interests and help them resolve their issues in:

  • Divorce
  • Separation
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Child support
  • Paternity
  • Fathers' rights
  • Grandparents' rights
  • Adoption
  • Alimony/spousal support
  • Guardianship

Why You Need A Lawyer For Divorce

In previous generations, a person seeking to end a marriage had to show grounds for divorce, and the matter was resolved by a judge. The advent of no-fault divorce changed that, and today most divorces are resolved through the two parties negotiating a settlement out of court.

However, these changes don't necessarily make divorce any easier. The two parties must still divide their property in accordance with state law, and this is no easy task. If they have children, they must decide on custody and visitation, and they must abide by a court order for child support. In some cases, they must also agree to alimony or spousal support.

The decisions you make about these issues can make a big difference on your financial and family life long after the divorce is finalized. A skilled attorney with experience in family law can help you make sure you make the best decisions, defend your rights and set off on the right footing as you begin your independent life.

Finances And Family Law

In addition to family law, I also help clients with debt relief issues, including personal bankruptcy. In many cases, debt problems and family law problems go hand in hand. I practice a thorough, detail-oriented approach to financial matters, while treating my family law clients with compassion. At the same time, I don't let my clients get pushed around by their exes or opposing counsel. I help family law clients keep an eye on the bottom line and build better futures for themselves and their children.
