What is Child Custody?
Custody is generally the physical care and supervision of a child (under 18 years
of age) and the legal responsibility of the child’s long-term needs. When
the court issues a custody order, it will address these two parts of custody:
- Physical custody is the physical care and supervision of a child (under
18 years of age). In other words, it addresses who the child will live with on a
day-to-day basis and who will make decisions that come up during that time.
- Legal custody addresses which parent has the right to make long-range plans
and decisions for the child's education, religious training, discipline, non-emergency
medical care and other matters of major significance to the child’s welfare.
Child Custody law and procedure varies greatly from state to state. In Maryland, Maryland Family Law has to be considered for Child Custody Cases. It is drawn from
the sources of the Maryland Code, Maryland Court Rules, and Maryland Case Law. The Maryland Family Law court system is very complex and requires the Judge to consider
many variables and laws before making a decision.
