FAMILY LAW

Maryland Family Law Attorney

When a relationship with a partner goes sour, people often become overwhelmed by the legal, emotional and monetary aspects of a split. Whether you are married or not, going your separate ways can be time consuming, costly and contentious. Having a compassionate and experienced lawyer on your side can make the process less painful and traumatic.

For experienced family law guidance, contact the Law Offices of Darlene Wright Powell, P.A., in Bowie, Maryland.

Making Difficult Decisions Easier

After making the difficult decision to separate from a spouse or significant other, many people do not realize the legal consequences that ensue and that deciding to end the relationship is only the first step. Division of property, child custody and visitation, spousal maintenance (alimony) and child support can all become issues as you proceed with the dissolution of your relationship.

The Law Offices of Darlene Wright Powell, P.A., assists married clients in all issues involved in divorce, marital dissolution and separation including:

  • Orders of protection
  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Visitation rights
  • Alimony
  • Property settlements
  • Stepparent adoptions

The Law Offices of Darlene Wright Powell, P.A. also assists single parents in all issues involving parenthood including the following areas:

  • Paternity issues
  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Visitation rights
  • Peace orders

Attorney Powell represents clients in both contested and uncontested family law matters. She prides herself on offering advice that tries to avoid costly litigation and works toward an amicable settlement of custody and property matters if possible. However, she has the experience and commitment to aggressively litigate family disputes when necessary.

Whatever stage you're at, be assured that Attorney Powell provides experienced family law representation. She can advise you not only on the divorce itself, but also about getting out of an abusive family situation, answering divorce papers that require a response and other urgent family law situations.

Handling New Issues as They Arise

Sometimes issues related to the dissolution arise after the divorce is finalized. Perhaps one spouse is not paying child support or spousal maintenance, or one of the parties is being denied visitation rights granted to them by the divorce decree. Attorney Powell helps clients handle post-decree (after divorce) issues, such as failure to pay child support, modification of support agreements, modification of custody and visitation rights and other post-divorce matters.

Family Law - It's Not Just Divorce

In addition to divorce, the Law Offices of Darlene Wright Powell, P.A. handles other aspects of family law, such as paternity, child support, child custody, visitation and domestic violence protection matters.
