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.

Absolute Divorce

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.
