Maryland is a No Fault Divorce State
In Maryland, the majority of couples seek a no fault divorce. With a no fault divorce, neither spouse is required to prove that the other one did anything wrong. In the vast majority of cases, a no fault divorce is the best option. The grounds for this type of divorce in Maryland are:
- Mutual consent; or
- At least 12 months of separation.
To be clear, a no fault divorce does not necessarily mean that it is a conflict-free divorce. Even when separating on no fault grounds, it is crucial that you seek professional legal guidance. All important questions surrounding your marriage dissolution— from property division to child custody — must be fully resolved before your divorce can be finalized.
