Why work with a family attorney?

It's always good to know when you should walk away from a problem and let a professional handle it. You may have great intentions as a parent who wants to handle as much of a divorce on your own as you can, but the reality is that divorce is complicated, and having a child makes it moreso.

Your parenting plan matters: Stability and support

After divorce or once you and your spouse separate, you need to develop a plan for your children's care. Parenting time has to be balanced with your work and the life you have now that your marriage is ending. You must agree on how you'll raise your children and how you're going to split your time with them.

Know your rights when seeking or paying child support

In Maryland, every child is given the right to receive child support from each of his or her parents. Parents wishing to seek child support can actually apply online to do so through the State of Maryland website. The Child Support Enforcement Administration (CSEA) has a calculator on its website that helps determine how much a person may owe in child support as well, which may be beneficial to some parents.

Support helps when you're working through an adoption

In Maryland, the adoption laws are designed to make adoption easier while protecting the rights of vulnerable children. The legal requirements for adoption can be complicated, so many people choose to work with their attorneys throughout the process. Most adoptions take place at the state level, but there are times when federal regulations may apply to a case.

Does bankruptcy make it impossible to adopt?

If you have gone through a bankruptcy in the past, you may be worried that you won't be able to adopt because of it. The fact of the matter is that there are many factors that determine whether or not you can adopt a child. A bankruptcy may affect your adoption, but it also may have a limited impact depending on a number of factors like where you live or how you plan to adopt.

Parenting plans help you lay out your child's schedule

Parenting plans are a required part of custody planning that the courts ask for. The judge wants to know that it's clear where a child will be at any time and that any contingencies have been discussed. It's important that you and you ex-spouse work together to create a plan that works with your schedules and the needs of your child.
