FAQs

How does Maryland determine child custody?

Section 5-203 allows the courts to determine child custody. In the state of Maryland, there is not difference between the mother and father. Judges take all evidence into account before making a decision.

What determines physical custody in Maryland?

Physical custody is determined by the courts. The primary custodian has the children living with them most if not all the time. The other parent may have physical custody for a portion of the year, and that schedule is often listed in a parenting agreement.
