A new school year will soon begin in Maryland. If you're currently navigating divorce, you may be anxious and worried about child custody arrangements and how your children will handle school work while adapting to their new lifestyle. If things are fairly amicable between you and your former spouse, the school year may progress without much difficulty. In fact, when you're both willing to compromise and cooperate where necessary for the sake of your children, there may be options available to keep stress levels very low.
Child custody is one of the most commonly contested issues in a divorce. Parents do not ever want to feel like they are giving up their relationship with their kids, and this desire can lead to lengthy court battles and costly litigation. However, for some Maryland families, there may be a better way to approach child custody.
