Maryland Divorce Attorney
An experienced Maryland Divorce Lawyer, Robert L. Flanagan understands that the pain of divorce can be agonizing. He focuses on getting issues resolved as quickly and efficiently as possible.
If circumstances permit, a collaborative divorce is often the best alternative. Parties, working with their respective lawyers may negotiate directly with each other, negotiate through their lawyers or utilize a mediator. The goal of a collaborative divorce is to reach a written separation agreement that resolves all issues incident to the divorce. This can reduce legal expenses and emotional turmoil. When the statutory requirements for divorce are met, usually a one year voluntary separation, the separation agreement is made a part of the divorce decree.
Unfortunately, not all divorces can be resolved collaboratively. In such instances the experience and skills of a seasoned divorce lawyer with litigation experience may be appropriate.
