Child Custody And Support
In Maryland, parents may be granted physical or legal sole custody or joint custody. Physical custody governs where the child will live. Legal custody gives the parent(s) the right to make decisions regarding the child’s education, religion and health care. Visitation or child access is usually granted to the noncustodial parent. Unless there are serious parental fitness concerns, the court generally favors maintaining a relationship with both parents.
Maryland’s statutory child support guidelines were modified in 2010. The amount of child support is determined by issues including each parent’s income, the number of children, health care and child care expenses, and alimony. Exceptions to the guidelines may be granted in high-asset cases. Discussing your case with a lawyer is the best way to learn how the guidelines may apply to you.
