Grounds For Divorce In Maryland
There are two types of divorces in Maryland: absolute divorce and limited divorce. Absolute divorce entails a legal separation of the married couple by the court, which ends the marriage. Limited divorce addresses the same legal issues as an absolute divorce does, but the couple remains legally married.
While Maryland recognizes “no-fault” divorces, fault-based grounds for divorce include abuse, insanity, adultery and more. To file for a no-fault divorce, at least one spouse must have resided in the state for one year before filing. You also must show that you and your spouse have been separated either involuntarily for two years or voluntarily for one year.
