Divorce Law FAQS
Depending on the nature of your divorce, it could be settled in a matter of weeks, or it could take many months to work out all the details. Whether your divorce is simple or complex, it’s crucial you have an experienced attorney representing you through the entire process.
In Maryland, you may be granted an absolute or a limited divorce. There are certain conditions that must be met for either scenario. For an “immediate” absolute divorce, you must have fault-based grounds for it. Otherwise, you must separate for one to two years for a full divorce to be granted. During that separation, a limited divorce may be granted.
