We Want To Protect Your Rights And Interests

More Than 70 Years Of Experience Protecting Parents’ Rights

Your children mean more to you than anything else in the world. If you are going through a difficult custody dispute, your counsel can make the difference between seeing them regularly and being alienated from them permanently.

At Hollis, Cronan & Fronk, P.A., protecting the rights of parents is what we do. Our team of three child custody lawyers has more than 70 combined years of experience advocating for mothers, fathers, grandparents and other individuals in the Talbot County region. We will stand with you through the difficult times so that you can stand confidently with your children during the happy ones.

How Do Maryland Courts Handle Custody?

If you and your former partner do not reach an agreement about custody, visitation and financial support privately, a judge will issue a decision. The court will consider several factors when issuing a custody order, such as:

  • The child’s relationship with each parent
  • Each parent’s willingness to foster a positive relationship with the other parent
  • The location of each parent’s residence
  • The stated preference of the child, in some situations
  • A history of domestic abuse, addiction or mental illness

Maryland’s family courts do not give preference to the mother in child custody situations; they assume that both parents have the ability to be custodians of their children. With that said, you have a much better chance of receiving a satisfactory arrangement if you have family law attorneys representing you.

Righting The Wrongs Of Parental Alienation

Parental alienation is a sad reality of many custody disputes. If your co-parent is trying to alienate your children from you, we will act swiftly to stop them. We explore your full range of options in the legal system and can use external sources such as expert witnesses who can testify on your behalf. Your current situation might feel terrifying and infuriating, but we have successfully helped many parents end parental alienation, gain access to their children and reverse their children’s psychological trauma.
