Making sure your parental rights are not given away

In Maryland and all other states, the court is typically of the opinion that children whose parents divorce fare best when provided ample amounts of time with both parents. This allows them to maintain active and healthy relationships, which increases their chances of adapting well to their new lifestyles. Parents, however, often face complicated challenges regarding child custody, visitation and other related issues. Parental rights are of paramount importance, and you undoubtedly want to make sure you protect yours.

Whether you're the custodial or non-custodial parent in your particular situation, you may voice any concerns you have regarding your current custody arrangement. For instance, if you are moving to a new state, you may need to request modifications to an existing court order.
