An unfortunate reality in divorce is, though you loved each other at one time, each spouse may not be as concerned about the well being of the other as they once were. This disinterest can lead to stowing away assets to reduce the amount of child support or maintenance granted. We will help track down assets and ensure you and your child(ren), if applicable, receive the support you are owed.
Equitable Distribution in Maryland
Maryland is an “equitable distribution” state, meaning that property such as the house will be divided based on what the court deems “fair.” Financial contribution will usually be considered when dividing marital property, which could be detrimental to you; for example, if you were a housewife. We work to ensure the property distribution is fair for both the primary earner and the secondary earner or dependent spouse.

When you need the most support, you may be alone and unsure how to move forward. Fait & DiLima will help you get the support you need and ensure you get what is right in your divorce.
