When a child custody or support modification may be needed


When Maryland parents divorce, they will typically reach an agreement regarding custody and support. However, life sometimes throws us curves, and changes may need to be made. While the changes may be in your favor - such as an offer out-of-state for a high-paying job - the court will be thinking about the best interests of your child as well. Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to request a modification.

Are medical expenses included in the child support I pay?


After a divorce or breakup, many noncustodial parents in Maryland dutifully pay their required child support every month. Depending on their income, these parents may pay hundreds of even thousands of dollars a month. But then they may be forced to make additional payments for medical expenses. Aren't these expenses already included in the monthly child support, and if not, what types of expenses must be shared by both parents?

Read on to learn more about the laws regarding child custody and support.
