What are the Types of Divorce in Maryland?
Maryland has two types of divorce: absolute divorce and limited divorce. In the case of an absolute divorce, the marriage is fully dissolved and each party is permitted to remarry. In order to successfully obtain such a divorce, the parties must go through either a separation for the duration of a year or demonstrate one of the following: desertion, adultery, excessively vicious conduct, cruelty, insanity, or criminal conviction.
The court supervises limited divorces. In a limited divorce, the couple is still married but is living apart. You may receive temporary orders for child custody and spousal support during a limited divorce. Limited divorces are granted for reasons such as cruelty, excessively vicious conduct, desertion or if both parties are living separately.
