Divorce & Child Custody


Of all the areas of dispute that divorce can open up, child custody is without doubt that which requires the greatest degree of sensitivity in its resolution. Maryland court procedure treats the best interest of children as top priority, but actually determining what constitutes best interest often proves to be a tall order. The emotions of both parents, often running in high gear throughout divorce proceedings, can become understandably embroiled in child custody disputes. While past research indicates a substantial prevalence of mother custody (usually hovering around 70% of cases), recent studies show an upwards trend towards shared custody in the United States.
