Obtaining a Maryland Divorce No Longer Requires a Corroborating Witness

A third-party witness is no longer required to get a divorce in Maryland.

Effective October 1, 2016, the testimony of the moving party is sufficient, making it easier to obtain a divorce. This revision of the law does away with the past requirement to have an independent third-party witness corroborate a plaintiff’s testimony.

Erin Kopelman is a divorce attorney who handles custody issues, child support, guardianship, domestic violence, property settlement, alimony, post-judgment issues, prenuptial agreements, and postnuptial agreements. For more information about obtaining a divorce in Maryland, contact Erin at (301) 347-1261 or elkopelman@lerchearly.com.
