Hagerstown, Maryland, Family Law Attorney Serving Clients Throughout Maryland

Family law is a unique area of litigation that often involves the most complex case law, while taking into account the raw emotions shared by the people involved. Whether the family law matter involves the dissolution of a marriage, a dispute over child custody and parenting time, or a more positive issue such as a stepchild adoption, when people's feelings are involved, more than just legal knowledge is required.

I am Maryland family law attorney Carl W. Disque. For more than a quarter century, I have been helping people resolve their toughest family law challenges. I will not only help you through the legal process, I will help you plan for and navigate the emotional issues you should expect, as well.

My area of experience, knowledge and skill in Maryland family law matters includes:

  • Divorce: To obtain a full divorce in Maryland, you are required to go through a one-year separation or prove other grounds for fully divorcing your spouse. I understand how difficult it can be to understand your rights and options regarding:
  • Modifications: Circumstances change in peoples' lives. If you can no longer meet the obligations of your original divorce or paternity judgment, I can help you petition the court for changes that make sense, including relocating with your custodial child, bringing your non-custodial child into your primary care, modifying your visitation rights, or your child support and alimony payments.
  • Other family law services: Whether you need a prenuptial agreement to protect your financial interests as you head into marriage, wish to adopt a step-child or are involved in a paternity dispute, I am ready to help.
