Maryland's Family Law Article requires that a judge consider evidence of abuse and, if established, the court must then "make arrangements for custody or visitation that best protect: 1) a child who is the subject of the proceeding; and, 2) the victim of abuse." If you have not already done so, you should consult with a lawyer familiar with this statue and pursuing these types of claims to assist you in presenting this type of evidence.
