Q. What is a default custody hearing? because my sons mother never responded to pleas for a custody hearing.
A: A default hearing usually means that the responding party or Defendant has failed to file an answer to the moving party's complaint. The Plaintiff would then request a default from the court to allow the case to proceed. At the hearing, only the Plaintiff appears and the court would usually grant Plaintiff the requested relief. In a custody case, the above procedure is followed but the defaulting party is still given the opportunity to be heard at a hearing. In cases involving parental rights and children, Maryland courts have held that the innocent child's rights to access to the parents should not be waived due to in action of one of the parents. In this case the mother should attempt to contact the court and advise of her situation and request transportation to appear in court. Otherwise, the court may postpone the hearing to make the necessary arrangements.
