Can I challenge a divorce decision?

In the vast majority of divorce decisions made by Maryland family law courts, there's nothing that can be done. The spouses at the center of the case will need to accept the judge's ruling.

Most states have adopted the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act. Nevertheless, different state courts may have different ways of interpreting the act. As such, if you are involved in a child custody dispute with a spouse who is living in another state, it is important to determine which state will have jurisdiction over the matter, and then find a family law attorney who is familiar with that state's interpretation of the law.
