Arlington, VA asked in Child Custody and Family Law for Maryland

Q: Does my baby mother have the right to know my precise location when I have our child if she knows the street address?

I told her the street address where I was staying and showed her around the house and even let her talk to the owner of the apartment but I don’t feel comfortable telling her the door number. I am living with my uncle to get financially stable and he said she cannot come over. At first she agreed to let our child come over to stay with me for a couple of days but once I got our child she says I need to bring her back because I won’t tell her the door number

A: Yes she has the right to know the precise location. If there is an emergency she needs to know exactly where the child is. Playing games about addresses never goes over well if this gets to court. Being more forthcoming and being willing to work with the other parent by giving information goes a long way with a judge.
