Sharing My List of Secret Weapons in Divorce

The one question I get asked all of the time as a divorce attorney in Maryland, as well as throughout Howard County, Montgomery, Carroll Anne Arundel, Baltimore and the surrounding areas, is how do I find the right people to help me.
I have people ask all of the time for referrals to all types of professionals, including but not limited to
marital and couples counselorsreal estate agentsmortgage brokersmental health professionalsaccountants and CPAseducational consultantscollege consultantsfinancial aid specialists
This is certainly not an exhaustive list, of course. While there may be a great deal of humor and jokes that accompany the topic of divorce, as well as divorce attorneys. Some of it may even be warranted. But I will tell you this: the well-tooled divorce attorney can provide countless referrals to clients to ease passage from your past to your future.
I love when my clients go with their spouse to either a marriage counselor or couples counselor. The truth of the matter is, most of my client complain-appropriately so-about some aspect of the counseling process. You need the right counselor for the right facts. Going to the wrong counselor often causes more harm than good. Whether it is in Howard County or elsewhere throughout Maryland, experienced divorce and family law attorneys should be able to provide solid referrals.
Do you think real estate agents are a dime a dozen? Think again? There are not only real estate agents who are the movers and shakers of their community. There are also agents who specialize in divorce cases, and a few who focus on short sales and foreclosures. Finding the right real estate agent in a market like Howard County during your divorce can be a challenge, but one an experienced divorce attorney should easily be able to handle.
The same is true for mortgage brokers. There are specialized divorce mortgage brokers, who help each spouse purchase a new residence. These folks, who get paid totally on the other end of the deal, work tirelessly to help people move forward.
These are but a few examples of the many professionals you will need as part of your "village" to move forward in your divorce.
Got a question? Give me a call. The attorneys at SIEGELLAW will likely have an answer for you.
