Getting custody of a sibling

There may be circumstances in Maryland in which someone needs to get custody of a sibling. This may be necessary because the parents are unfit or deceased. In the former situation, the fight may be emotionally difficult. Furthermore, it will be necessary to prove that the parents are putting the child in danger. Courts are generally reluctant to separate a child from the biological parents. A person will also have to demonstrate an ability to support the child and offer stability.
