You or your spouse must meet the Maryland residency requirements for the Circuit Court to have jurisdiction of your case. The requirements before filing your Complaint for Absolute Divorce (the document that initiates your divorce) are as follows:
There is a 1 year residency requirement if the grounds for the divorce occurred outside the state of Maryland, otherwise if either spouse is a resident of the state of Maryland, he or she may file in the county in which either spouse resides.
In order to use this service, you and your spouse must agree (or eventually agree) on getting the divorce. Your spouse's participation is minimal, being he or she will only have to sign a few documents and return them to you for filing with the court.
The most common "uncontested" grounds for divorce in Maryland are:
1. There is no reasonable expectation of reconciliation;
2. Voluntary separation, if the parties voluntarily have lived separate and apart without cohabitation for 12 months without interruption before the filing of the application for divorce; and there is no reasonable expectation of reconciliation.
All of your documents will be current according to Maryland statutes and will address over 100 issues. A few of these issues are; assets, property, current debts, future debts, insurances, retirement and pension accounts, spousal support/alimony, real estate, small businesses, tax filings, name changes, and professional fees. If you have children, our service will also address physical and legal custody arrangements, visitation schedules, child support, and health and medical coverage.
If you desire, you can visit the Maryland State Website for more information about Maryland divorce laws.
Our service will utilize the most effective procedures in which to get an uncontested divorce. By applying these simplified rules permitted by your local court, your divorce will be simple and affordable. These court rules are as follows:
Marital settlement agreements are specifically authorized by statute and may be used for full corroboration of a plaintiff's testimony that a separation was voluntary if: (1) the agreement states that the spouses voluntarily agreed to separate and (2) the agreement was signed under oath before the application for divorce was filed.
