Divorce wasn't easy in Colonial times, but was certainly possible

These days, divorce is a common occurrence in Maryland -- so common that most people know quite a few couples who have been through a divorce. Most people tend to think that divorce is more of a modern phenomenon than something people did in the past. Divorces were indeed rarer in the past, but they were not unheard of -- even in Colonial times.

How do I defend against a speeding ticket?

Let's say you were driving down the interstate and a police officer "caught" you with his radar gun. After pulling you over, he gave you a ticket that's going to cost you hundreds of dollars in fines. You're also facing the threat of increased car insurance premiums. The problem is, you don't think you were speeding and you feel the ticket is unfair.

Child custody modifications: It's better not to wait

If you're a single parent, your child is probably the most important person in your world. If you're a single non-custodial parent, though, you probably only get to see your child every other weekend or once or twice a week. It can be hard to spend that time away from your child, but the idea of losing all access to your child is even more frightening. Unfortunately, that's what could happen if you can't pay your child support payments on time.

Maryland child custody litigation: What do judges consider?

To say that child custody disagreements are one of the most difficult parts of a Maryland divorce would be an understatement. Our children are the most precious possessions we have. As such, the threat of not having constant access to them is one of the most terrible things that any parent could imagine. For this reason, child custody disputes are often heated, difficult to a resolve and, if parents cannot come to an agreement, the litigation can be costly.

Rape victims may not have to share child custody anymore

There are many Maryland mothers whose children were born as the result of an incident of rape. Although it's hard to believe, some of these mothers are forced to give their rapists visitation rights and other parental rights. Fortunately, the possibility of this awful scenario could soon be done away with forever.
