The Inner Workings of a Sole Child Custody

When Sole Child Custody Is Given

Sole child custody is the type of custody where only one parent is given both the legal and housing rights of the child or children. It is seldom granted to only one parent; however, for more complex and difficult cases, the court rules that the child should be in the sole custody of a parent especially if it means better welfare for the kid. Usually for these cases that one parent wants sole custody; you would need to consult with a lawyer in Maryland.

There are only a few cases that warrant sole custody in the state of Maryland.

In the state, the only time one parent is granted sole custody is when the other parent is deemed by the court to be unfit and unable to care and provide for the child. These circumstances may include alcohol or drug abuse and child or domestic violence.

In other legal matters, if the mother chooses not to recognize or acknowledge the child’s father in the birth certificate, she will have sole custody but will not be able to receive or collect child support. The father of the child can prove paternity in order to secure his rights to the child.
