Child Custody, Divorce & Family Law-A Cooperative Approach
Mr. Mosson represents family members navigating the complexities of separation, custody, divorce, and alimony in a cooperative posture. This means that a spouse or parent is approaching a separation, and hopes to solve it without fighting at court, through negotiations.
So, this means he or she seeks to negotiate the terms of the separation in writing, and approval as necessary by a court of law. The separation of a couple is a delicate matter. Mr. Mosson’s approach is a cooperative one to resolve separation issues while helping his clients achieve the desired new outcomes.
However, Mr. Mosson also has trial and litigation experience. He has represented his clients through complex, multi-day custody trials in Baltimore County, Calvert County, and Anne Arundel County Circuit Courts, single-day trials in Baltimore City and elsewhere, and before the Maryland Appellate Court.
Mr. Mosson handles many family matters by one-time consultation, out-of-court negotiations, as well as by limited-scope representation for matters along the way.
A limited scope representation might involve helping someone handle only a settlement conference, protective order hearing, drafting a separation agreement, for instance; or a parenting plan, marital-property-settlement agreement; or handle some other specific legal event.
If children are involved, the resolution must be viewed in terms of what is in the best interest of the child, under Maryland law. While this typically includes a parent's judgment of the best interest, it also corresponds with how a Court shall approach any custody dispute.
Mr. Mosson’s approach is holistic and mindful. The best first step in any family matter is to arrange a consultation. He welcomes the opportunity to help.
