Deciding where your children will live and how often you will get to spend time with them is not easy. Which parent should your son or daughter live with? If your son or daughter lives with Mom, how often and when can Dad visit? Where will your children be for national and religious holidays, such as Christmas or Labor Day, half days at school or days off for teacher training, or the long summer vacation?

Maryland Child Custody Agreements

When they do, they may want a Maryland child custody lawyer to put their agreement into writing so that the Court will incorporate the parents' custody agreement into the Maryland child custody order. The Maryland child custody lawyers at Edwards Phillip Amourgis, PC, can guide you in reaching an amicable resolution of these issues while still protecting the issues that mean to most to you.

When There Is No Child Custody Agreement
When there is no Maryland child custody agreement, the fight over the custody of your children can be a heart-wrenching battle between parents, guardians, and other people who love and care for your children and want what is best for them. Both parents may wish to do what is best for their children but cannot agree. Maryland child custody and the related issue of child support are frequent sources of conflict between parents.
Why Get a Child Custody Lawyer
When the parents are fighting about child custody in Maryland, a judge will weigh various factors to determine who custody the children. Parents are not necessarily awarded joint custody of the children, nor will the judge automatically give custody to the children's natural mother. Therefore, it is vital to present a strong case in court so that when the judge weighs the factors used to determine custody, they will choose the outcome you prefer. A Maryland child custody lawyer who is experienced with Maryland child custody cases will know what factors the court considers when determining child custody and help you present your best case to the court.
