3 things to do if you want to relocate with your child

Your ex may not be happy to hear that you want to move, even though it means you'll have a better job to provide for your child. The fact is, if your ex wants to put up a fight, he can.

There are a few things you can do to help make sure the court rules in your favor, though.

How will future generations define a parent?

There have been a growing number of difficult child custody cases that have made headlines in the past few years, and surprisingly, many of them are not the usual suspects involving divorce. No, now with in vitro fertilization quickly becoming more accepted across the nation, many new child custody cases are begging the question: how do we define a parent when it comes to issues of custody?

Adding to your family by adopting children from China

When most people here in Maryland think of adoption, their minds more often than not steer towards images of Brad and Angelina Jolie.
