Child Custody, Visitation and Support

Looking Out for the Best Interests of Your Children

Some parents may place their children in the middle of their arguments during the divorce process. Some parents let emotions cloud their judgment when dealing with child custody, visitation and support issues. At the Law Offices of Corrie A. Boulay, our lawyers will help you see past the anger and resentment you may be feeling to help you reach concrete solutions with regards to your children.

Child custody litigation is the hardest thing we do as family law attorneys. Parents love their children and want what is best for them. However, anger toward a spouse often gets in the way of negotiating a workable child custody and visitation agreement.

Attending Parenting Classes

In Maryland, the court will require you to attend parenting classes to learn how to co-parent your children after divorce. As a part of these classes, the courts often invite adult children of divorced parents to explain how their lives were affected. Hearing what kids go through in divorce can be an eye-opening experience for parents.

The most important issue in any child custody and visitation arrangement is to protect the best interests of your children. Our lawyers have negotiated arrangements ranging from joint custody with 50-50 access to children to sole custody for one parent. We also help same-sex couples and fathers assert their custody rights when necessary.

Child support: Child support in Maryland is determined by a formula that considers the incomes of both parents and the number of children supported. Child support can be modified after a divorce if there is a significant change in your financial circumstances.
