Our Baltimore divorce attorneys note that before initiating a divorce proceeding, spouses should make sure that they are able to meet the state’s residency requirement. In Maryland, at least one spouse must be a resident of Maryland for at least one year prior to the filing of a petition for divorce.
As an equitable distribution state, Maryland allows judges to divvy up cars, homes and other personal property in a way that is deemed fair, though not necessarily equal. When making a decision with respect to alimony, a judge will look at relevant factors, such as, grounds for divorce, economic circumstances of each spouse, the contributions of each spouse to the well-being of the family and the length of the marriage.
Grounds for Divorce
- Desertion for twelve months
- Conviction of a felony or misdemeanor
- 12 month separation
- Cruelty of treatment
- Excessively vicious conduct
- Mutual Consent
