Alimony Child custody and visitation

We protect your parental rights to raise your children in an appropriate and supportive home.

Child support

We can ensure that you receive or pay an equitable amount of the financial support required to raise your children in a healthy, happy environment.

Child support modification and enforcement

Child support payments do not change unless the court modifies the child support order. If either the custodial or the noncustodial parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, we can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly, and defend you if you get behind in your payments by working out payments with the Court and keeping you out of jail.


Through mediation or litigation, we can help you gain the most equitable results from your divorce, including fair distribution of assets, pensions, retirement plans, and all other investments, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody and visitation rights.

Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings

The Law Office of Ronald H. Cooper is skilled at maneuvering through the complex laws of Maryland to protect your parental rights from the interference of government authorities.  Also, we defend juveniles in criminal Juvenile Court proceedings.  Further, we handle Child In Need Of Assistance (CINA) and Child In Need Of Supervision (CINS) cases.


Mediation puts the decisions in your hands and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than a trial. We can help you obtain the most equitable divorce, property and custody settlements. Further, we try to proceed through mediation and negotiation to keep legal fees at the lowest possible cost.

Pre- and post-nuptial agreements

The Law Office of Ronald H. Cooper expects the unexpected and drafts premarital and postmarital agreements that protect both spouses’ interests and that can alleviate some of the stress if you ever divorce.
