Sexual Abuse Conviction Does Not Alter Visitation

| Jan 30, 2017 | Divorce |

In an appeal of a divorce and custody decision in Prince George’s County, The Maryland Court of Special Appeals recently held that a father’s dishonesty concerning a conviction for sexual abuse of an adult does not result in mandatory modification of a visitation schedule mandating that the father have tiebreaker authority in certain decisions. Instrumental in the appellate court’s determination was the fact that the court had ample evidence before it concerning the conviction at the time the initial determination was made.
