This section includes information about custody in Maine, including allocation of parental rights and responsibilities, best interest factors that a judge will consider, how domestic violence affects, custody, grandparent visitation, and more. In our general Custody page, we have information about custody that is not specific to any state. The page includes a section about how to try to transfer your custody case to a new state where you are living so that you can modify the custody order from your new state.
