Men and Divorce
While we represent both men and women going through divorce, it's important to know that we understand what you're going through if you're a man - especially a father - with legitimate concerns about what can happen to the relationship with your children and your personal finances.
Issues unique to men in a divorce case in Baltimore, Maryland:
- Maryland has a long history of courts automatically awarding child custody to women, over the objection of men who were fully capable of being the custodial parent.
- Maryland also has a long history of assuming that men can handle paying large amounts of money in child support and spousal support (alimony), regardless of the actual financial means to do so.
The divorce lawyers for men in Baltimore, Maryland, at James E. Crawford, Jr. & Associates don't just assume that things are any different for men and fathers just because we're in the 21st century.
If you're facing divorce, you'll want to do all you can to limit your exposure to paying burdensome financial support - with due respect to reasonable child support obligations - and win child custody or generous visitation time so that you can maintain a strong relationship with your kids.
