Re-Negotiate with Our Family Law Attorneys in Anne Arundel County
Determining child custody and visitation rights is perhaps the most emotional aspect of a divorce. Unfortunately, the matter can often re-open years after separation due to life changes like a relocation. When you need to re-negotiate a previous custody or visitation agreement, turn to the Law Offices of Dwight W. Clark, L.L.C., for help. Our family law attorneys in Anne Arundel County will build the strongest case possible for your circumstances.
Moving is a part of life. People relocate for all types of reasons, including career changes, educational opportunities, and familial issues. However, when parents are separated, a relocation can make it difficult – or even impossible – for one parent to exercise their custodial or visitation rights.
When that occurs, retain a Howard County attorney from our firm. We work tirelessly to increase your chances of a positive outcome and fair settlement. In addition, we help clients re-negotiate other aspects of their separation, such as child support in Howard County.
Building The Strongest Possible Case
Most courts reviewing your child custody agreement when you are moving following a divorce will look to see what is in the best interest of the child. However, if you are moving after your divorce because of a job or career change, courts will consider that information. Other information they may take into consideration includes:
- How deep the child’s ties are to his or her school and community
- Whether or not the child has access to extended family in Maryland
- The motives behind the relocation
- How the move may benefit the child
- Whether or not the move will make physical visitation very difficult or impossible
Because each case is unique, and the questions presented are inherently difficult, courts look at the individual situations in each case and try to determine what kind of custody arrangement will work best. We can discuss which options may work best regarding your child custody or visitation rights.
Sometimes, the court may grant one parent sole physical custody as a result of the other parent’s inability to remain in the state. The court may also modify existing child support agreements and court orders. If you need to modify child custody or child support agreements, we will make sure that the new agreement takes into account your current situation.
