Do We File ‘No Children’ If Neither Parent Has Custody?

Ask a Lawyer


Do we file ‘no children’ in our divorce, if neither of us, as parents, have custody of the children we have?


Baltimore attorney Ashley J. Ward

While I am not licensed to practice law in your state, I am able to provide an answer due to my experience in family law.

Although you may not have custody of your children, the court would still need to know if any children were born of the union.

Without further information, I am unable to address how you should describe the children’s current living space. If someone else has custody of the children per a court order than that can be explained in your divorce pleading. If the custody is a more informal arrangement, then the court would need to make a final ruling on that matter in addition to the divorce.
