Maryland third party custody is a complex, rapidly evolving area of family law. These dynamic changes mean that third parties have gained significant rights with each new appellate case over a fairly short period of time.
Third party custody cases, often grandparents fighting for custody of their grandchild or grandchildren, are usually very sensitive and emotional cases. Many times, the child’s parents are facing difficult issues in life, whether it be drug abuse, mental health, or otherwise. In these situations, there is a high burden for the third party to prove that it is in the child’s best interests for the third party to have custody. Kelley Spigel, a top rated Maryland family law attorney, has years of experience litigating third party custody cases for her clients.
