Best Interest According to Who?

Posted by Michael E. Lyons | Feb 28, 2020 | 0 Comments

If you are going through a custody or divorce proceeding involving children, you may have heard the phrase, “the best interest of the child.” Well, what does that really mean and how is it relevant to your family law case?

Maryland courts decide child custody disputes by making a finding as to what is in the child's best interest. There is no straight forward test, but rather the court considers a multitude of factors on a case by case basis. It is the courts job to listen to the evidence and arguments from each side and make a decision as to what custody arrangement will be best for the child. Since there is no exhaustive list of factors the court considers in child custody cases, it is invaluable to have an attorney who can present your case in the best way possible. The attorneys at Patriots Law Group have extensive experience handling child custody cases.
