MARYLAND FAMILY LAW APPEALS: Trial and Appellate Advocacy
Perhaps the trial court decision about divorce, alimony, child custody, visitation, child support, property division and monetary award, or other family law issue is confusing or unfavorable to you and you're not sure about your rights. Or maybe your adversary has filed an appeal and you're not sure what your next step should be.
