At Hansen Legal & Mediation Services, PC, we encourage amicable divorce over the escalated cost and animosity of contested divorce. However, parting on cordial terms still requires a clear and detailed separation agreement.

I am Angela Hansen, a knowledgeable family law attorney and mediator who can help you arrive at consensus and draw up the legal papers. I draft and review separation agreements (divorce settlements), prenuptial agreements and other legal documents relating to divorce and property.

Located in Rockville, Maryland, my law practice serves individuals and couples throughout Montgomery, Howard, Prince George's and Frederick Counties. Whether you were legally married or co-habitating, I can help you protect your interests and go your separate ways without future legal entanglements.

Amicable Divorce And Property Settlements

The court will not sign off on a separation agreement unless it covers all facets of property, custody, child support and (if applicable) alimony. If you have a basic agreement, I can help you tweak it and put it in appropriate "legalese" for submission to the court.

On closer examination, many couples seeking a simple and amicable divorce discover that they still have unresolved disputes. I am trained to conduct family law mediation to find a practical compromise, or I can represent you in court as your lawyer if contested proceedings are necessary to settle a particular legal issue.

Many clients are business owners who have special concerns relating to valuation of the enterprise or how divorce would affect the buy-sell agreement or business succession. I am able to address stocks and securities, real estate and other complicating factors in preparing and filing a marital separation agreement.

Montgomery, Frederick, Prince George's and Howard County Prenuptial Agreement Attorney

A prenuptial agreement designates separate property of each party prior to marriage and dictates the terms of settlement in the unfortunate event of divorce. A "prenup" does not presume that the marriage is doomed — many prenuptial agreements are never invoked. It does clarify disputes and streamline proceedings, bypassing expensive and protracted litigation.

Prenuptial agreements, also called premarital agreements, can address property, investments, business holdings, debts, financial support, financial settlement and any other terms the parties agree to. However, a prenup cannot demand full custody, abolish child support obligations, or otherwise dictate custody and care of children.
