Understanding a child's best interests

The phrase "best interest of the child" is one many Maryland residents recognize. However, this step in the child custody process is not always easy to determine. While a separation alone is hard enough on a family, deciding where a child will spend time can also prove a mountainous task. Whether it is the stage of informing a child of a divorce, working through disagreements with an ex-spouse or reconsidering pre-existing child custody arrangements, parents can turn to a number of resources to make the process smoother.

How can I make co-parenting easier?

In a world driven by technology, it is not surprising to learn there are websites that can help you and your family navigate the emotionally charged aftermath of divorce and child custody in Maryland. For some, it may be a business, but there are also real people who really care about what you may be going through and want to help. Regardless of their intent, these sites offer an easier way to deal with ex-spouses, which can make your life a little easier too.

Common child custody disputes

A divorce can affect families in a number of different ways, and each situation may differ greatly from the next. For Maryland ex-spouses navigating child custody, just one speed bump in the process can create a mountain of stress; not to mention, the wellbeing of children involved remains a top but overwhelming priority. Below are some of the most common child custody disagreements, and ways parents can best address them.

Why shared parenting laws cause so much controversy

As the current legislative session gets underway, Maryland lawmakers are expected to tackle the difficult topic of child custody reform. Specifically, Maryland may become the latest state to adopt so-called shared parenting custody laws. However, while there has been plenty of popular support for shared parenting laws, they remain highly controversial, with critics seeing them as placing the interests of parents ahead of children's interests in custody disputes.

What if child custody issues cross international borders?

As the world continues to become a more inter-connected global society, international marriages have become more common. However, an upsurge in international relationships and marriages also has resulted in an increase in international child custody disputes. If you have recently divorced from your partner and they have taken your children out of the country against your will, or you fear that they may do so, here is what you need to know to help protect your children and resolve issues.
