Mutual Consent As Grounds For Absolute Divorce In The Circuit Court for Baltimore County.
Mutual Consent is the newest grounds for divorce in Maryland available as of October 1, 2015. Pursuant to Maryland Code, Family Law §7-103(8), an absolute divorce may be obtained under the Mutual Consent statute provided that:
- There are no child custody issues meaning no children under the age of eighteen.
- There is a Marital Settlement agreement resolving alimony and the distribution of property with due regard to §8-205 and 8-207 respectively.
- Both parties must appear at the final divorce hearing.
The Law Offices of Amar S. Weisman has helped many clients obtain Judgments of Absolute Divorce based on Mutual Consent. We begin by meeting with the client to craft a Marital Separation Agreement meeting each client's goals. As with any divorce, it is essential for clients to work with counsel to define the parameters of a reasonable outcome that cannot be attacked as one-sided. Upon completion of the first draft, the Marital Separation Agreement is typically mailed to the opposing party for consideration. It is usually the case that some negotiation strategy is necessary to close the deal.
