Family law in Maryland: Child custody and abuse accusations

There is no place for violence in any situation. When it comes to family law rules in Maryland, the law pulls no punches that children do not belong in settings in which violence takes place. When parents are divorced and there are accusations of abuse against one parent, the courts have to decide, based on evidence, who should have physical custody of the child based on the child's best interests -- the parent accused of abuse, the alleged parent who is the victim or both parents. 

Contracts and contract litigation: Asking the right questions

One of the wisest pieces of advice when it comes to contractual agreements is to make sure everything in a contract is understood before the contract is signed. When it comes to contracts and contract litigation in Maryland, much stress might be avoided if the person entering into a contract with a vendor understands what he or she is really getting into when it comes to contracting for services or goods. Going it alone, without getting advice, may cause real problems down the road.
