Montgomery and Frederick County Child Custody & Visitation Attorneys
How Is Child Custody Determined in Maryland?
Whenever a divorce occurs and there are children involved, the matter of with whom the children will live is often an area of contention and great emotion. No parent wants to lose contact with his or her children, and no fit parent should have to endure such a thing. After all, studies have shown that in most cases, it is in children’s best interest to remain in close contact with both parents after a divorce, no matter the custody arrangement.
Our Montgomery and Frederick County child custody attorneys have more than 50 years of combined experience with family law matters, and have an excellent track record of helping families resolve difficult issues in a quick, efficient, and cost-effective manner.

In determining child custody and visitation, the courts will consider numerous factors, including the fitness of the parents, character and reputation of parents, parents’ residences, the preference of the child, and other factors. The primary concern in any custody or visitation arrangement is the best interests of the child involved.
Dealing with difficult and emotional family law issues is never easy. However, working with an attorney who not only knows the law but also knows and understands your needs as a person can make the whole process easier and less stressful.
