Bloomington, IN asked in Child Custody for Maryland

Q: My brother is going through an issue w/ custody of his daughter and his ex wife is trying to take full custody

He told me that she can get full custody since they both don’t currently live in my nieces school district and she filed first so he has no rights. I don’t live in Maryland and I was wondering if this is true and or if there is anything that can be done or if he is leaving important information out

A: The best thing he can do it get an attorney asap. He has rights as a father. School district is one of many factors that may be considered when determining factors that would be in the best interest of the child.
