The parent coorfinator would be able to testify about anything you or the other parent said and about anything the coordinator knows which would help the judge understand what is going on, and to make a decision. Do not turn the coordinator into your enemy, you will not like the consequences. Get an attorney's advice on strategies helpful to you.See question

You should file for modification of custody because the children have been living with you since 2016. Baltimore County Circuit Court does not grant emergency Court Hearings except under the most dire of circumstances involving life or death situations, or threat of serious harm. Sounds like you need a consultation with an experienced custody attorney to guide you through this very difficult situation.See question
My son's father does whatever he wants to do. Most often not following my court order. What can I do about it??
You should file for Contempt of Court and be very specific in your legal documents about each and every violation of a court order. The Court can order him to pay for your attorney's fees to enforce your rights, and can make him compensate you for lost parenting time, etc. Talk with an experienced attorney for pointers on your best strategies in these matters.See question
I am looking to relocate to my hometown several states away from MD. My ex and I have shared custody of two children 8 and 11. how difficult is it to move with children out of the state the children and father currently reside?
I have handled various cases in which one parent wanted to have custody of the child out of state either on a move away or on a transition of the child to the out of state parent after the parents split up. It can be done, however, it is difficult when the other parent is opposed and is willing to go to court to fight to prevent it. The last move away case I handled I was able to persuade the court that Mom should have the daughter with her during the school year and that Dad should have her during the summer and winter break. We had a trial and the court agreed it was best for the child for my client to move to California where she could have a higher paying job and a great education in her field. The battle in court was very intense and difficult. So if the other parent is determined to stop you, then you should be prepared for the big court battle. Talk with an experienced custody attorney for pointers on what you need to do to have the greatest chance of success.See question
We loved and welcomed our now daughter in law for four years prior to our son and her getting married. We never had a conflict or cross word. It was an ideal situation and we couldn't be happier to welcome her into the family. A couple of months...
Your son and daughter in law have made choices. Let them both know you still love them regardless of what has happened. Then move on with your life without them. Seriously. Obviously I must be wrong about my advice, because after all, what do I know. I know far more about your situation than you realize. Your daughter in law is apparently psychopathic and unforgiving. You will not change her, and your son will not change her either. Respect yourself. Move on. Seriously, I am not kidding. See a therapist. Get help. You need it. And please do not waste your time in foolishly suing her. She would relish such foolishness.See question
I'm a mom to a 6 month old. Dad and I were not together during pregnancy or after. He has only seen her once. He is not on birth certificate or has any rights. Can I move out of the country ? Would I have to come back if he ever decides to get rig...
The answer to your question depends on what the Father does, how soon he does it, and how determined you are to move out of the country, and whether or not you can tolerate risk well. It is possible you will end up with an international custody case, and that you might have to allow Dad to have visitation here in the USA. However, as I said above, everything depends on how much each of your want to assert your positions, and how much money you or Dad can afford to pay for expensive attorneys. There really is no clear, simple way to answer your question. It all "depends."See question
I am planning to file in June since our separation will be one year in June 2017 but I am not sure what is right for me.
The easiest Absolute Divorce to obtain is one by Mutual Consent. The second easiest one to obtain is one based on a one year separation, living in different residences, with no marital cohabitation for that year. I recommend you consult with an attorney for pointers on how to get this done.See question

My husband has filed for modification of visitation. Unfortunately, he can not afford a lawyer. My husband is dyslexic. Due to this learning disability, will I be able to speak for him in court? Or help him at all?
Only an attorney is allowed by law to represent another person in a court of law. Translators are allowed, but ordinarily, this would be translations from a language other than English into English so the judge can understand the litigant. You may not represent your husband in court whether he is dislexic or stutters or has some other speech impediment. However, a person who cannot speak could have a sign language translator translate for him/her. If you can understand your husband's speech while others cannot, then you will have to ask the court to give your husband and you special permission for you to translate for him. Your husband must file a motion with the court to make a special request along these lines, long before trial. You can, however, help him write all the legal documents, help him prepare for trial, and everything else associated with trial preparation.See question
