Maryland Divorce Separation and Annulment
Divorce is the term used by court when it orders to end a marriage. In Maryland,
however, you could ask for two types of divorce: absolute and limited.
When the court decrees or orders an absolute divorce, it means that the divorce
granted to the couple is permanent. Absolute or permanent divorce permits remarriage
and terminates any property claims.
Limited Divorce or Legal Separation
When the court decrees or orders a limited divorce, it means that the divorce granted
to the couple is not permanent and it does not permits remarriage. It also does
not terminate the property claims. It only serves to legalize the separation between
the couple and provide for support.
Is Limited Divorce compulsory for Absolute Divorce?
No. Absolutely not! This is a popular myth or misconception that you need a legal
separation in order to get absolute divorce. This is not the case. Since divorce
in Maryland is statutory, the law is located in The Maryland Annotated Code under
the Family Law section of the Code in subsection 7.
Annulment establishes that your marital status never existed. When the court declares
annulment, it means the court believes that you were never married. Because the
courts rarely grant an annulment, you should think twice about using this route
if you want to end your marriage. The court may look to, but is not limited to,
the legitimacy of children and the preservation of the sanctity of marriage. Because
of these considerations a court will look to granting a divorce instead of an annulment.
