2 ways to obtain a child custody order in Maryland

You and your child’s other parent might have parted ways, but that doesn’t mean that you won’t have to deal with each other. In most cases, you and your ex will still have to have some contact and communication because you have a child together. It is almost always a good idea to remain cordial because this could help you as you work through the child custody case. It would also help to lessen the stress your child has to deal with since cordial communication between you and your ex won’t make him or her dread having the two of you in the same space.

If you and your ex are able to work together, you can come up with a child custody arrangement. It is important that this agreement is in the best interest of your child. That means that you and your ex shouldn’t try to use the child custody agreement as a way to “get back” at each other.

There are times when agreements about child custody can’t be reached. In that case, the court will decide on the issues that you and your ex can’t agree upon. If that occurs, the court will take several points into considerations. These points include anything that is relevant to your child’s best interests.

In most cases, it is best if you and your ex can work out the agreement together since you and your ex know your child. Make sure that you fully understand how each decision you make might affect your child so that you can ensure that the agreement is what is best for your child.
