Family law is the area of law that relates to family and domestic relationships. It is a highly specialized area of law that takes years of study and practice to fully master. Importantly, disputes and issues related to family law can have a direct and profound impact on some of the most important aspects of a person’s life. The outcome of a legal matter related to family law can impact your financial situation, your access to your children, and even where you live. For this reason, it is important for anyone involved in a family law dispute or who is considering getting married to speak with an experienced lawyer as soon as possible.

Divorce is a complicated legal process that can have many incidental issues that may be in dispute. In addition, the relationship between people who are getting divorced has often soured to the point that they are unable to communicate in a constructive way. Because of the significant impact that the outcome of a divorce case can have on an individual, it is extremely important for anyone who is considering pursuing a divorce to talk to a lawyer immediately.


Legally adopting a child can be a rewarding and fulfilling experience, but it is often difficult for hopeful parents who do not have legal training to navigate the system. At Conklyn & Associates, we assist parents at all stages of adoption and work hard to make the process as simple and fast as possible.

Child Custody

When parents divorce or choose to live separately, there is often a significant dispute about with whom their children will live, the amount of access the noncustodial parent will have, and other major parenting decisions. Our attorneys are dedicated to helping people who are involved in child custody disputes bring them to an agreeable resolution.

Maintenance (alimony)

In cases where one spouse earns significantly more than the other, Maryland courts may award maintenance, also called alimony. Maintenance involves one spouse making periodic payments to the other spouse in order to help them meet their financial needs. Because courts have significant discretion in deciding whether or not to award maintenance, it is important for both those seeking and those attempting to minimize or avoid alimony to retain legal counsel.
