You never stop being a parent. The right lawyer can help you develop a child custody and visitation plan tailored to your needs - one that allows you to protect your parental rights and be there for your children, no matter what challenges come your way.

At the law office of Carl W. Disque, P.C., Attorney at Law, we are dedicated to helping Maryland parents through their most difficult times. As a Hagerstown child custody attorney, Carl Disque understands what you are going through, and he knows what a difference the right child custody and visitation plan can make.

Custody and Visitation

There are two parts to every comprehensive child custody plan: custody and visitation. The court can award legal or physical sole custody or joint custody. Legal custody determines which parent or guardian will have control over important decisions in his or her child's life, including education and health care. Physical custody determines where the children will live.

In Maryland, visitation is known as child access. While coming up with a fair child custody plan is important, developing a child access schedule tailored to the needs of your family is equally important. We can help you develop a plan that protects your custody rights and works for your children.

Child Support

In addition to helping our clients with their child custody and visitation concerns, we also handle child support matters. Child support is determined by a statutory formula in Maryland, but it is crucial that you make sure the court has an accurate understanding of your financial situation. We can also assist you with modifications to child support or with enforcement and contempt for nonpayment.
