Divorce is never an easy process in a person’s life. In Maryland, a divorce may be sought by one party to the marriage or both if the proper filings are made within the Court System and legal grounds for the divorce are determined to exist by a Judge. 

In Maryland, there are two methods for achieving a divorce: Absolute Divorce and Limited Divorce. 


Absolute Divorce is a term for the formal and final legal ending of a marriage. After a Judge makes a ruling for an Absolute Divorce, the parties are no longer married. In a Limited Divorce, the parties have the opportunity to set support, use and possess the family home, divide property and set other terms of their living apart, and these terms become part of a Court Order, which is binding between the parties although they continue to be technically legally married.
