Divorce Residency Essentials to Get Divorce in Maryland

When you file for divorce in Maryland, there is a six-month residency requirement if the grounds for divorce occurred outside the state. If the grounds for divorce and occurred within the state, there is no minimum residency requirement.

Reasons for Divorce in Maryland

Maryland recognizes both at-fault and no-fault grounds for divorce. The no-fault grounds in Maryland include a 12-month separation where the parties have lived separate and apart without cohabitation for 12 months and mutual consent (only when the parties have no minor children and all issues of property, debt and support have been agreed-upon.)

For a fault-based divorce, the state of Maryland recognizes adultery, cruelty, excessively vicious conduct, insanity, willful desertion and conviction of a felony. Other reasons may be accepted too, but they do not tend to be applicable in an uncontested divorce.

Custody of the Children in Maryland

Joint legal custody is not always awarded in a contested situation, but it can be agreed upon by both parties. The court always considers the best interests of the child as well as if an agreement is adopted by the parents when determining legal and physical custody. Working out an agreement mutually can help the divorce proceed through the courts as uncontested and makes it eligible for a do-it-yourself divorce which can be more affordable, easy and fast.

Maryland Child Support Guidelines

The standard state child support guidelines in Maryland will exist in virtually every case barring exceptional circumstances. Both parents’ gross income, as well as certain child related expenses, are taken into consideration when calculating child support figures. Child support continues to be paid for the child until the child reaches age 18, and it may continue through a child’s secondary education.

Venue

Divorce in the state of Maryland should be filed in the county where the filing spouse resides, or where the defendant resides, is employed, or owns a place of business.

Divorce Mediation

The court is Maryland may order divorcing parties to mediate custody or visitation disputes if it is determined that mediation would be beneficial. In addition, the parties may voluntarily choose to mediate their own disputed issues so that the divorce may proceed in court as an uncontested divorce rather than on a contested  basis.

Filing fees

The Maryland state court fees are in addition to those charged by BuyDivorcePapers.com. These filing costs vary from county to county. Check with your local courthouse for more information about these charges.
