Maryland does not have set statutory guidelines for custody considerations. Courts decide custody disputes based on what is in the child’s best interest. Through our knowledge, understanding and experience in child custody matters, we are equipped and able to advise and advocate for the best custody arrangement for your child.
Modifying A Child Custody Order
In the years following a divorce, it might become necessary to alter or modify the original child custody agreement. Topics from pickup/dropoff times to provisions such as the right of first refusal can be added to or amended in the custody arrangement. Additionally, parents might need to relocate for a new job opportunity or to move closer to an established network of family and friends. This relocation can have a significant impact on the other parent, making it necessary to come to a legal agreement regarding custody, visitation and parenting time.
