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.
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.
Aspects of Child Access We Assist You With
- Child custody is the most important component of a divorce. It’s also the most contested, with both parents fighting for their rights to be with and make decisions for the child. Our Rockville, MD, child custody lawyers understand both the emotional and legal elements of these cases. We can help you navigate the various obstacles and reach an outcome that is best for your child.
- We can begin by negotiating with the other parent to create a custody agreement. In addition, we will be ready to escalate the case to court if necessary. Contact our Rockville, MD, child custody lawyer today to discuss your options.

Courts in Maryland do not use a set of factors to determine child support, as they do with alimony. Instead, courts will use a set formula to determine which parent is eligible to receive child support and how much he or she is entitled to.
Our firm assists clients during this process by working to make sure that their income and assets are accurately reflected in the child support formula. This formula looks at the combined income of both parents, and it is essential that the calculations be accurate.
We look at a family’s specific circumstances to determine if other support might be available. This comes into play when a child has a chronic medical condition that entails extraordinary and monthly expenses for his or her care. If our client is entitled to child support, we work to ensure that supplemental payments are available to meet these expenses.
Child Support Enforcement
Sometimes the parent who pays child support — or the one receiving it — will ask a court to modify an existing child support order. We help our clients seek support modification when there is a change in their circumstances, such as a job loss. We also represent recipients of child support when their former spouse seeks a modification.
If you are not receiving the child support you have been awarded, we can assist you with enforcement of the order. We can guide you through the legal proceedings necessary to get the court on your side.
