Helping Families Navigate Through Some of Life’s Most Difficult Challenges.
The Law Office of Kelley Spigel is highly experienced in all of the following areas:
Ending a marriage can be extremely emotional. Dealing with all of the legalities while going through such an emotionally devastating time can be confusing and stressful. The Law Office of Kelley Spigel is experienced in handling all types of divorce cases, from those involving only one or two issues to cases involving cheating, abuse or allegations of abuse, property distribution, division of retirement assets, custody and more. While it is always my goal to reach an agreement that is great for my client, I am also always prepared to act as a fierce advocate in the courtroom.
In the event both spouses agree that separation and divorce is best for them and wish to settle issues relating to their marriage (including, but not limited to, alimony, property, division of retirement assets, and custody), it is best to have the agreement drafted as a contract, typically called a Marital Settlement Agreement. Kelley Spigel has negotiated and drafted many Marital Settlement Agreements and is always thrilled to help her clients reach an agreement that makes them happy.
Custody and Visitation
Custody is often a very contentious issue. The court follows many factors in determining who should have legal custody and physical custody, which can be very confusing for those not familiar with the factors and how they apply to your specific case. The Law Office of Kelley Spigel is here to protect you through the entire custody process and to fight for what you know is in your child’s best interests. .
Modification of Custody
Many things change over time. Due to any of a number of reasons, you may want to ask for a change in a previous custody order. In order to do so, the court must be convinced that there has been a material change in circumstances affecting the welfare of the child. Call the Law Office of Kelley Spigel for a consultation to discuss your case for modification of custody. .
Third Party Custody
Third party custody cases, often grandparents fighting for custody of their grandchild or grandchildren, are usually very sensitive and emotional cases. Many times, the child’s parents are facing difficult issues in life, whether it be drug abuse, mental health, or otherwise. In these situations, there is a high burden for the third party to prove that it is in the child’s best interests for the third party to have custody. Kelley Spigel has experience litigating third party custody cases.
Call the Law Office of Kelley Spigel prior to your marriage to help you protect your assets just in case you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of contemplating divorce in the future.

I was referred to Kelley from a family member, who said that she knows more about family law in Anne Arundel County than anyone. From the time we spoke on the phone to our meeting in her office, I knew I had made the right choice! She followed up weekly and even daily to ensure my case ran smoothly and gave us the best results. She is personable, caring, and knows more about family law than I could have imagined. Thanks to her, I was awarded Primary Custody and Child Support in a very tough situation. I cannot thank her enough and will continue to refer those who are in need of her excellent service and knowledge of the court system!

Facing a divorce can be daunting, scary and stressful – it certainly was for me – and finding the right lawyer is absolutely crucial when you need to work out a solution that works when you find yourself in a place in life where you hardly can think straight for yourself. I consider myself very lucky to have found Kelley after a lengthy search. Trusting her to represent me in my divorce proved to be one of the best decisions I made. I would describe Kelley as a no-nonsense, straight to the point, extremely knowledgeable and professional divorce lawyer. At the same time she is a strong negotiator who finds creative solutions to hammer out agreements that work. On top of everything she has very good people skills so no matter how much I stressed she was there for me and helped me to stay in perspective – and most important not to lose my sanity! Best of all she is extremely affordable. That combined with taking care of all my worries ensured I could sleep at night knowing that I was in the best hands possible. I can’t be more grateful to have had such a wonderful professional in my corner.

I sought the help of Kelley Spigel concerning a 3rd party custody case. Out of the 3 lawyers I met with she was the one I felt who could handle my case. I highly recommend her. She is very professional and personable at the same time. On my first meeting with her I came away feeling so relieved and felt assured things would go in my favor...and they did. She showed a genuine concern for what was going on and always responded promptly when contacted. I am so thankful for the service she provided and would not hesitate to use her again!

I would highly recommend Kelley. She did an AWESOME job with my custody case and my protection order. Kelley stayed in touch with me through out the entire process and she always made sure my girls and myself were ok. She is VERY well priced for the types of cases she handles, and I will always refer anyone with the same needs as I had to her in a second. Lastly... Thank you Kelley you are AWESOME!

She took the time to sit down and really listen and understand the situation so she could make sure that she was doing everything possible to get my mother what she deserved out of this. I will always HIGHLY recommend Kelley to anyone! Excellent attorney!
