Protective orders issued at the end of your case last up to a year, and can safeguard you against a variety of things, which are specific to your circumstances. Protective orders can include provisions like ceasing of abuse, no contact, vehicle use, counseling, relocation from family home, visitation and custody rights modifications, firearm surrender, and much more.
3. How does the court in Maryland determine visitation rights?
In the state of Maryland, even if the parent does not have custody of children, he or she still has visitation rights. Visitation arrangements are set either by parenting plan or by court, and it is often a fixed schedule. For instance, a child spends every other weekend, or specific number of days in a month with the non-custodial parent. There are also instances where a parent may only be allowed to see the child while the visit is supervised. The supervision can either be conducted by a custodial parent, professional third party, or other adults. When determining visitation rights, the judge takes into consideration things like character, reputation, fitness, work schedule, child’s wishes, parent’s preferences, and similar factors.
4. How do I draft a parenting plan?
The court in Maryland wants the parenting plan to reflect what’s in the children’s best interest. The plan should include specifics about arrangements of physical custody, visitation schedule, arrangements for communication, or how major decisions will be made. The entire plan serves to enforce strengthening the relationships of child with both the custodial and non-custodial parent.
Please note that parenting plans can also be modified post-divorce if one parent refuses to comply with the terms laid out in the plan. In addition to modifications to the plan, the parent may also seek further mediation and counseling.
