How Do Maryland Courts Determine Custody?
Child custody and visitation agreements change depending on each family’s situation. Parents may end up having sole or joint custody, physical custody or legal custody. Physical custody determines where the child lives. Legal custody refers to who has the right to make the important decisions when raising the child.
Typically, parents choose to have joint physical and legal custody during divorce proceedings. Often one parent will have primary physical custody of the child, while the other parent has visitation rights. The best interest of the child ultimately determines which parent is the primary custodian.
Several best interest factors include:
- Psychological and physical capabilities of each parent
- Character and reputation of each parent
- Preference of the child
- Proximity of the parent’s homes
- Financial status of each parent
