First would like to know fee structure please. Have only a few questions regarding child custody agreement in Maryland

Lawyer's Assistant: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Maryland

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Unusual situation... I have sole legal and physcial custody of 14 year old granddaughter. Given voluntarily by her mom and dad 3 years ago. Mom relocated to colorado, dad in Maryland. Mom wants custody back and child to move to colorado. child does not want to go. What are child rights at age 14 in Maryland?
