Baltimore fathers rights advocates will tell you that Maryland decides custody based on the best interests of the child. The long-standing presumption that the mother is the better parent to have sole custody or custodial care of a child is long gone. This has been a step in the right direction for Baltimore, Maryland dads rights.
In Maryland, fathers win child custody in contested cases 50% of the time. In uncontested cases, however, dads are the custodial parent only 10% of the time.
Since 1986, Baltimore dads rights have been given better consideration in Maryland custody cases. Many different factors are considered in the “best interests of the child” doctrine. These include the ability of the parents to effectively communicate with each other on issues involving their child’s welfare, preference of the child, child’s relationship with parents, the sincerity of a parent’s request for custody, parents’ financial status, and much more.
If you are a Baltimore dad who wants to assert your fathers rights by spending more time with your child, you need a Maryland dads right attorney who will aggressively pursue your case.
