Types of Divorce in Maryland

In the state of Maryland, there are two types of divorce, absolute and limited.

An absolute marriage will legally end the marriage by settling all issues such as property division, custody, and support. Once this has been finalized, you and your spouse are eligible to re-marry.

A limited divorce occurs when not all issues are agreed upon. It is common for couples to attend a court hearing to address these concerns. If both parties eventually agree, via mediation or negotiation, then they will be eligible for an absolute marriage.

Keep in mind, legal separation does not exist in Maryland. Still, if you and your spouse live apart with the intention of ending the marriage, and do not have sexual intercourse, then separation can be utilized as a ground for divorce.
