Experienced Towson, MD Family Law Attorney
Batchelder Law & Mediation, LLC is a Towson, MD family law firm, offering a variety of family law services involving separation, divorce, custody, and related matters. These services include Mediation, Collaborative Divorce, Lawyer Negotiated Settlements, and Children’s Counsel. As a mediator, I assist separating couples in negotiating a comprehensive settlement of their family law disputes by facilitating their communication with one another, and by remaining neutral without representing either party. Collaborative divorce is a team-based approach to divorcing, which focuses on solution-based negotiations and a commitment to divorce outside of the court system. If hired as an attorney to conduct lawyer-negotiated settlements, I assist the client in negotiating with the other partner by working with the attorney who represents the estranged party with a focus on reaching an equitable settlement outside of court. As children’s counsel, I represent minor children throughout their parents’ contested custody and visitation disputes in the court system.

The process that you choose to resolve your family law dispute is up to you and your partner. It can be amicable, where you cooperate to ensure that what happens to your family and finances is best for all family members. Or it can be adversarial and hostile, by using the court system to dictate to you how your lives will work moving forward. If your choice is to work together amicably, please contact me and we will explore which process works best for you and your family. Separation and divorce do not have to destructive. You hold the power to choose.
The focus of my practice is that parents will be able to attend future school meetings, sporting events, social events, and the like in one another’s presence in a manner that is respectful, civil, and supportive of the parties’ children, even as they move into adulthood. By settling your divorce rather than litigating, you are giving your children the gift of a healthy relationship with both parents and their extended families, which is the best gift a parent can give to their child.
