Handling Child Custody And Support Issues

While divorce can trigger a lot of pain and stress, it is important to make sure that your child or children are protected from these forces. It is also essential that your children continue to receive emotional and financial support from both parents. At Rhodes Law Firm, LLC, we use our considerable experience to help families through the trials and tribulations of a divorce and reach an amicable resolution regarding the well-being of your children.

Child Custody In Maryland

Maryland courts determine child custody based on the child's best interests, which are determined by a variety of factors, including the history of each parent as well as the needs of the child. Most courts assume that a child should have guidance and support from both parents. This is why joint custody is awarded in many cases. However, there may be times when the court feels that sole custody to one parent or the other will be more beneficial for the child.

At Rhodes Law Firm, LLC, we help all our clients understand the relevant laws and work toward a resolution that benefits both the child and the client. In case a child custody agreement cannot be reached, our lawyer will assist you with court-appointed psychological evaluations, guardian ad litem and more.

Maryland Child Support Laws

Every child in Maryland has the right to be financially supported by both parents. These rights cannot be waived by the parents and will be enforced after a divorce. Child support payments take into account various factors such as the number of children and the income of both parents to allocate responsibility for:

  • Medical insurance
  • Day care costs
  • A part of college education expenses
  • Extracurricular expenses, etc.

We work with our clients to negotiate child support issues and make sure that all sources of income are considered when calculating payments. At Rhodes Law Firm, LLC, we provide the best possible legal guidance in establishing or modifying child support payments.
