Maryland Divorce Basics
Maryland has relatively unique laws regarding divorce when compared to
other states, and residents have the ability to seek either an absolute
divorce, or a limited divorce.
Absolute Divorce: This is essentially what most people think of, as it ends with the couple
no longer being married in any legal sense. This is a complete dissolution
Limited Divorce: This can be thought of as a legal separation. Matters of child custody,
property division, spousal support, etc. are all addressed, but the couple
remains legally married at the end.
To file for divorce, you or your spouse must have been a Maryland resident
for at least one full year prior to filing for divorce. Alternatively,
you may file for a fault-based divorce, which requires you to prove that
something your spouse did caused irreparable damage to the marriage. These
include, but are not limited to:
- Cruel or vicious behavior
