If you are thinking of going through an absolute divorce, grounds must be established, here are the grounds that the State of Maryland recognizes:

  • Uncontested divorce: this means that divorce is a mutual agreement. Everything is already settled including division of assets and child custody. No more disputes are needed to be negotiated in court. With that, the court will immediately grant the divorce, saving more time for you.
  • Separation: You and your spouse must be separated for a year uninterrupted. You should also have no sexual relations with your spouse.
  • Desertion: Your spouse abandoned you (and your children) for unjustifiable reasons; and your spouse has the intention to end the marriage.
  • Adultery: your spouse had a sexual relationship with someone else, you can file for a divorce.
  • Cruel treatment: If your spouse is cruel and violent towards you and your children, this is a ground for divorce.
  • Incarceration: If your spouse did a crime and sentences three or more years in prison.
  • Insanity: If your spouse is in a mental institution for three years, you can file for a divorce, or if a medical doctor has declared that your spouse is not in the right mind.
