Custody disputes over pets have increased in divorce hearings

It is a fact of life that some marriages end in divorce, across the country as well as in Maryland. When a divorcing couple has children, custody battles can include long and arduous battles over the best living situation for the children. Additionally, custody battles over pets are becoming increasingly common. Pets become part of the family, and people build strong and distinctive bonds with their animals.

Marital status can affect taxes for Maryland residents

Recently married or divorced Maryland residents should be aware that their new marital status can affect their taxes. When preparing a tax filing, it is important to choose the correct marital status as this choice establishes the tax bracket and determines eligibility for certain deductions and credits.

Divorce may be challenging for D.C. lobbyists

Maryland readers may be familiar with a D.C. power duo who had been known for throwing parties at their home in Kalorama and openly celebrating their joint profession as lobbyists. Now, the parties are in the middle of a divorce, after 11 years of marriage. When the couple made their split public one year ago, they said that they intended to remain friends. Now, although the husband still claims to have "great affection and respect" for his estranged wife, their friendship could become a casualty of the divorce proceedings.
