Did mother lose legal custody because she was poor?

An interesting case is making its way through the appellate courts of one northeastern state, and the outcome could change the way that custody matters are handled in Maryland and across the nation. The case centers on whether a parent has the right to pro bono legal counsel in the event that he or she cannot afford an attorney.

When preparing for this important series of discussions, it can be helpful to have a mental outline of how things might go.
