Ensuring Your Ongoing Relationship With Your Child

Determining matters of child custody is one of the most contentious aspects of divorce. For some parents, understanding Maryland's laws regarding child custody may seem convoluted and overly complex. Based in Rockville, and serving throughout the region, I carefully explain the various child custody scenarios and how they apply to your situation.

Understanding Maryland's Child Custody Laws

Just as each family has different needs, the law affords parties an opportunity to arrive at various types of child custody arrangements. This can facilitate an agreement so that separated parents and their children can continue their relationships in a healthy, constructive fashion.

There are two basic types of child custody in Maryland:

  • Legal custody: Legal custody accounts for the rights of parents to be involved in important life decisions concerning a minor child, such as religious upbringing, education and major medical treatment. This includes both sole and joint legal custody.
  • Physical custody: Physical custody includes shared and sole custody.

As your attorney, I will explain the different custody arrangements while helping you and your partner construct an amicable agreement. If a resolution cannot be reached through mediation, I am prepared to take your case to court and advocate for your rights to your children.
