Maryland's Family Law Statutes Can Make Divorce Difficult
In Maryland, any couple who wants to get a divorce faces one of the strictest sets of standards in the nation. Generally, you need to be separated for at least one year before you can receive a Judgment of Absolute Divorce.
In only two situations, can the one-year waiting period can be avoided – when one of the parties has committed adultery or when there has been severe spousal abuse. Nonetheless, most of our cases that start as adultery cases or with severe abuse end as mutual and voluntary separations and are divorced after a one-year separation.
At Avery & Upton, we can help you navigate Maryland’s stringent laws and we can help you choose the strategy that best fits your unique circumstances. To schedule an appointment with a lawyer, call us at 301-762-7644, or contact us online.
