Maaike also specialises in complex matters regarding alimony and she is broadly experienced in handling financial affairs in divorce cases and legal separations (the division of marital community property and completing prenuptial and/or postnuptial agreements). She is a highly skilled lawyer where custody and contact arrangements are concerned. Are you prepared to solve the dispute together? As an expert mediator, Maaike provides guidance to parties in making arrangements and solving problems.

Besides her family law practice, Maaike also runs a general civil law (litigation) practice, with the emphasis on law of obligations and business law.
