Experienced Custody Rights Law Firm
To modify child custody and visitation orders, there must be a material change in circumstances of at least one party. This may include issues such as:
- Failure to follow the parenting plan/custody and visitation agreement
- A significant change in health of a parent or child
- Child neglect or abuse
- Alcohol or drug abuse by a parent
- Parental relocation out of state
If custody modifications cannot be resolved by negotiation, we can represent you in court. Our founding attorney, Todd K. Mohink, has considerable experience with contested, complex cases, including a published case.
In a landmark case, Braun v. Headley, 131 Md.App. 588, 608-609 (2000), cert. denied, 531 U.S. 1191 (2001), attorney Mohink helped a parent with visitation rights gain full child custody and return the child to Maryland from Arizona. The case established the principle that a custodial parent does not have rights beyond those of a parent with visitation rights.
