Separation No Longer Required for Every Maryland No-Fault Divorce
Maryland couples with no issues for court resolution and no minor children will now be able to get a divorce without an actual physical separation or waiting period. This new no-fault ground will apply to cases filed after October 1, 2015 where both parties agree that all property and support issues have been resolved in writing and neither tries to set aside that agreement. Both must appear at the final divorce hearing.
