Since 1998, Kamkari Law has provided vigorous and effective legal representation to our family law clients, whether in divorce, custody, protective order hearings, and/or negotiating and drafting separation and property settlement agreements. While many lawyers go through the same motions for different clients who are in different situations, at Kamkari Law we make an assessment of your case, which includes both the legal issues as well as the non-legal issues that could also affect the legal issues. After our initial assessment, we devise a strategy in consultation with our clients that fits the specific client’s goals and situation. If conditions change, then we will adjust our strategy accordingly.
For example, usually one of the parties is in a better financial position to support a contested family law case to the end. Clearly, an experienced family law attorney should have a different strategy depending on which party they represent in the case. Another example is that in child custody cases there are different bonds and relationship between the children and their parents, and those relationships should be strongly considered in crafting a strategy for the client’s child custody case.
To best serve our clients’ interests, we first try to settle your case to save you the stress, hassle, and the cost of a contested family law case. However, if you are facing an unreasonable spouse or their lawyer then we will vigorously represent your rights in your divorce, child custody, and/or protective order cases.

A party may be entitled to receive alimony during the pendency of the divorce case, which is called pendente lite alimony. The rationale behind pendente lite alimony is that a spouse in need of support may not be able to wait to receive support from the other spouse while the parties are waiting for the final divorce trial, which could take a year or more from the date of initial filing with the court. If you do not have the ability to pay for your reasonable living expenses while you are waiting for the final divorce trial and your spouse is able to financially contribute to assist you with your living expenses, you could obtain a court order for pendente lite alimony.
The primary factor in deciding post-divorce alimony is the parties’ income and respective financial condition, although there are a number of other factors that could come into play. Unless the parties reach an agreement, a party requesting alimony must prove that he or she is entitled to receiving alimony under the law. In Maryland, alimony is either “rehabilitative” or “indefinite.” Rehabilitative alimony is intended to be a short-term measure after the parties’ divorce that would provide the spouse receiving alimony the time and opportunity to become self-sufficient. Rehabilitative alimony is for a fixed period within which the spouse receiving alimony is expected to become self-sufficient. Indefinite alimony is usually reserved for longer term marriages where one spouse has been financially dependent on the other spouse. Indefinite alimony continues until the death of one of the parties, until the party receiving alimony marries, or until the parties’ income and/or financial condition materially changes so that alimony is no longer necessary or should be reduced.

Maryland is an equitable property State, which means that all marital property is divided equitably and fairly between the spouses. Marital property is any and all properties that have been acquired by either or both parties during their marriage regardless of how they are titled. Any property that was acquired by either spouse during their marriage is presumed to be marital property. Pre-marital property, gifts, inheritance, and property that can be traced to such assets are not subject to equitable division under the Maryland law. Most common examples of marital property include, but are not limited to, the value of a business or professional practice, equity in the house, pension plans and retirement accounts, automobiles, and bank accounts to the extent that they were accumulated during the marriage.
It is not uncommon for divorcing couples to decide the division of their assets with the assistance of their respective attorneys rather than litigating a divorce case and leaving it to the court’s decision. But if you are not able to reach an agreement, you can ask the court to resolve the dispute between you. Contact our Maryland divorce lawyers for an appointment if you would like additional information or are seeking experienced, aggressive representation in your divorce case.
Owning a lucrative business could present many opportunities and benefits, however, there are numerous legal and financial considerations for both the buyer and the seller of an existing business or professional practices (doctors, dentists, etc.) when entering into such contracts. From the buyer’s standpoint, he or she may unwittingly inherit the past debts and liabilities of the business that occurred long before the buyer was even interested in purchasing the business if a contract is not properly negotiated and drafted. In an asset purchase agreement (where the buyer purchases the assets of the company as opposed to purchasing its stocks), the allocation of the purchase price could also have significant tax and financial liabilities as well. A seller should also make sure that he or she is well protected by a solid contract particularly if the seller has proprietary information that would have to be disclosed prior to the closing of the sale or if the seller is financing a part or the entire purchase price. Unfortunately, many people are not aware of these potential negative consequences and they sign a “form contract” provided by their agents believing that they are adequately protected. These form contracts do not take into account your specific investment, and they are not customized to provide you with maximum protection for your particular transaction. Many buyers and sellers find themselves in a precarious position years after the sale/purchase of business and realize that they will have to spend substantially more in litigation cost than they would have had to spend on attorney’s fees to be well represented in their transactions. Our Maryland business lawyers can represent you in buying or selling a business or professional practices to make sure that your rights are adequately protected. Call us for an appointment if you are planning to buy or sell a business in Maryland.
