The law office of Anderson & Axilbund, LLC, has over 25 years of experience guiding clients through difficult legal situations. We understand the financial and emotional concerns involved with divorce, and will explain your legal options and help you find a cost-effective way to reach your individual goals, whether that involves negotiation, mediation or litigation.
Child Custody and Visitation
We work closely with clients to develop a litigation strategy for child custody and visitation to allow parents to protect their own rights while serving their children's best interests. Minimizing the emotional impact of the divorce on the children is a top priority for us.
Alimony and Support
Many factors, such as both parties' incomes and financial needs, are considered in child support and alimony determinations, and we will help you understand what to expect.
Legal Separation and Separation Agreements
If you and your spouse are thinking about separating, whether or not in contemplation of a divorce, a separation agreement (also known as a property settlement agreement) is an effective method for resolving issues in advance. Should a divorce occur, having this agreement in place allows for a more amicable and cost-effective split.
If you are a stepparent who wants to adopt your stepchild, we will guide you through the legal process and complete all of the necessary paperwork to accomplish the adoption.
Also known as "antenuptial agreements" in Maryland, these agreements allow parties to specify in advance how assets will be divided in the event the marriage does not work out. Especially for individuals bringing significant assets into a marriage or remarrying, these agreements offer significant benefits that should be considered.
Whether you recently divorced and would like to take back your maiden name or you want to change your name for personal or religious reasons, we will help you complete all of the necessary paperwork to obtain the court order to change your name legally.
