Absolute Divorce vs Limited Divorce in Maryland
Maryland has relatively unique laws regarding divorce when compared to other states, and residents have the ability to seek two different types of divorce proceedings. In Maryland, you have the opportunity to file for 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 of marriage.
- 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.
