When is A Good Time To Settle a Child Custody Dispute In Baltimore County?
Not every child custody dispute in The Circuit Court for Baltimore County needs ot be heard before the family law magistrate and/or the judge. The reality is that most, if not all, child custody matters are settled especially when there are competent attorneys representing both parties. Although the timing of a settlement cannot be predicted due to variables like the litigation style of the opposing party and the scope of the legal custody, physical custody and child support disputes and differences, settlements in Baltimore & Towson usually occur after there has been an opportunity to gather and exchange evidence & discovery and the completion of any custody evaluation and drug/alcohol screening ordered at the Scheduling Conference.

Using Baltimore County Parent Coordinators To Achieve Settlement Of Child Custody Disputes.
Settlement is still possible even if there might be disputes between the parties in the foreseeable future. To the extent both parents are willing, the Parenting Plan can refer the parties to a parent coordinator to facilitate communication concerning legal custody and physical custody issues. When both parties are willing, parent coordinators can quickly and economically resolve minor disputes about physical custody issues like visitation times and parental access so the parties do not have to engage lawyers and return to court whenever there is a disagreement. The approach parent coordinators take focuses on the children even if one parent is focusing on their self-interest. Parent Coordinators cannot settle major legal custody disputes under Maryland Law.
