Proposed changes to child custody laws for military personnel

But anyone in Maryland who is thinking about divorce themselves can learn something from this couple's divorce as it plays out, and see similarities to their own potential situation.

It can be an important day for fathers too, a time to enjoy extra time with their children. It would be nice if the day was great for everyone, but some Maryland authorities made sure it wasn't much of a great a day for many fathers who are behind on child support.
