What are the steps for filing for custody?

The steps for filing for custody may vary depending on your particular situation.  Custody matters are often very complicated and if you can hire an attorney to draft the paperwork for you, it might make the process a lot simpler. To find a lawyer or legal aid program in your area, please visit the MD Finding a Lawyer page. However, if you are going to file for custody on your own, you may find the forms you need by going to the Maryland Courts website.
