Family Law

The attorneys at Goodwin Weber PLLC have litigated cases for more than two decades in Maryland, Virginia, the District of Columbia, and New York. We provide representation to clients in all aspects of family and domestic relations law in each of these jurisdictions. From pre-and post-nuptial agreements to divorce, child support, alimony, and the division of marital property, we can help navigate an appropriate course for you and your family. We also represent non-traditional families, including same sex couples.

We also believe in doing the right thing for our clients – recommending – when appropriate – to engage in negotiation, mediation, or other collaborative methods to resolving disputes. Doing so earns less for the attorney, but frequently results in a more amicable, cost and time efficient resolution of your family dispute. Contact us so that we can discuss how we can help you.

Divorce and Domestic Relations Dispute Resolution

When the time comes, whether one or both partners decide to end a marriage, it can be an emotional and highly-stressful time. An experienced team of attorneys can help you move forward.

Parents with young children must consider custody and visitation with their soon to-be-ex-spouse. Families must prepare for substantial new financial obligations.

We understand the heavy financial and emotional toll of divorce. We guide clients through all stages of their divorce, and help get you back on your feet. We handle amicable divorces, when we can, and litigate divorces for our clients when it is not possible to come to a negotiated resolution.

We represent clients with each of the following issues:

  • Marital Property Division
  • Disposition of Marital Home
  • Division of Retirement Accounts
  • Alimony (and pre-trial alimony, while case is pending)
  • Child Custody and modification of Child Custody
  • Visitation and Access
  • Child Support (and pre-trial child support, while case is pending)
  • Taxes
  • Military Retirement and Benefits

High Net Worth Families and Family Owned Businesses

Goodwin Weber PLLC has experience representing ultra-affluent and high net worth families in dispute resolution in Maryland, Virginia, Washington, DC and New York. Divorce and domestic disputes need to be considered carefully in any circumstance, but this is especially so when your family is wealthy, or owns a business. Contact Goodwin Weber PLLC if we can help you with a high value dispute, or the need for business valuation.

Pre and Post-nuptial Agreements

Prenuptial Agreements should be seriously considered in second marriages or where there is a significant asset or education disparity between the parties getting married. While a divorce can present serious uncertainty to one’s financial assets, a prenuptial agreement can provide some measure of certainty. Contact Goodwin Weber PLLC to discuss how we can assist you in drafting a prenuptial agreement prior to your marriage, or domestic partnership.
