Family Law Attorneys Advising On Legal And Physical Custody In Maryland

Child custody disputes can be a deeply emotional and complex part of family law. With a rich history of over two decades serving families in Montgomery and neighboring counties, our team at Hecht & Associates is well-versed in the intricacies of Maryland’s custody laws.

We are committed to guiding our clients through the challenging landscape of divorce and child custody with a strategic and caring approach. The best interests of children and the protection of parental rights are dual concerns for our clients, and we address them accordingly.

Legal Custody Vs. Physical Custody: Understanding The Difference

When it comes to child custody, Maryland law distinguishes between two key concepts: legal custody and physical custody.

  • Legal custody refers to the right to make significant decisions about a child’s life, such as education, health care, and religious upbringing. Parents with legal custody have a voice in shaping their child’s future.
  • Physical custody, conversely, pertains to where the child resides and the day-to-day care they receive. This can range from one parent having primary physical custody to an arrangement where both parents share custody equally.

Our attorneys have a great deal of experience in legal and physical custody cases. We believe understanding the distinctions between these types of custody is crucial for parents embarking on the journey of divorce or custody disputes.
