Upper Marlboro Divorce Lawyer

Protecting You And Your Children In Family Law Matters

Divorce can be as painful as a death in the family, and disputes over child custody can make it particularly difficult. It is understandable for parents to want to do everything they can to stay close to their children, but a prolonged custody battle — especially one that plays out in the courtroom — often ends up hurting parents and children alike.

At Ralph W. Powers Jr., P.C., we handle every aspect of family law and divorce, with an emphasis on mediation. Our experience has taught us that one-sided solutions often result in an adversarial atmosphere between ex-spouses that can last for years after the final settlement or judgment. In the interest of helping both parties move on from the experience quickly and with confidence, we help our clients work toward long-term solutions that are fair to everyone involved.

Our Maryland family law practice serves clients in Prince George’s, Calvert, Charles, St. Mary’s and Anne Arundel counties. Contact us today to discuss your family law matters with our attorney.

A Note About Mediation:
While you may have very clear ideas of what is fair and unfair in your divorce, a judge or jury can see justice in a very different light. When the terms of a divorce are imposed from outside the marriage, it can lead to further resentment and protracted legal battles. For parents who want to work toward a lasting compromise, our firm provides family law mediation to resolve divorce and child access.
