Child Custody and Visitation

Elkton, Maryland, Child Custody Visitation Rights Lawyer

When making a decision regarding child custody and visitation, the court will always put the best interests of a child first. Unfortunately, when a divorce turns acrimonious, it's not uncommon for one parent to unfairly accuse the other of being an unfit parent. In order to protect your parental rights, it's best to work with an attorney who can accurately present your emotional involvement with your children, the fitness of your household and your financial support. If you can fully establish your ability to support your children financially and emotionally, you have a better chance of gaining or retaining custody. At the Law Office of Michael J. Onifer, III, P.A., we zealously advocate on behalf of our clients in all child custody and visitation hearings.

"I was charged with possession with intent to distribute heroin. I was arrested and my baby was taken to social services. It seems that my world was crashing down quickly. Mr. Onifer is my father's attorney and he agreed to represent me. He had me enroll in drug and alcohol therapy and I was able to get my child back. On my trial date he convinced the Judge to give me a probation before judgment verdict." --Alexandra Orem

"I was charged with second-degree assault and malicious destruction of property and Mr. Onifer was able to have both charges dismissed." --Michael Elliot
