Putting Your Child’s Best Interests First
Courts throughout Maryland and the nation have adopted the position that what is best for the children takes precedence over the desires of parents. In most family law cases, courts hold that having a strong relationship with both parents is in the best interests of a child. Courts achieve this by awarding parents with shared custody, where both parents are involved in major decisions such as decisions related to education and health care. While the child will have a single primary residence in most cases, with the parent awarded physical custody, the courts strive often for a fifty-fifty split of time and responsibility.
However, our office sees cases every day where one parent must fight to maintain sole custody over the children, and in these cases, you need our Cecil County Maryland child custody lawyers who know how to represent your crucial interests and litigate on your behalf. Particularly in situations where there exists:
- Child Abuse Including Emotional, Physical and Verbal
- Substance Abuse
- A Significant Criminal Record
- A History of Neglect
- Sexual Misconduct
- Child Neglect
- Child Endangerment
In cases where there is reason to believe the child may be unsafe in the custody of one parent, having an effective Maryland child custody lawyer on your side to protect your rights and the best interests of your children is critical. Even if you have a previous custody arrangement, we can explore child custody modification options to ensure that your kids are in the best hands.
