Baltimore County & Towson Divorce Lawyer | Grounds For Divorce | Absolute Divorce.
Absolute Divorce Under The Maryland Family Law Article.
In Maryland, you cannot obtain an absolute divorce without going to Court and establishing that you have grounds to obtain an absolute divorce. An absolute divorce completely severs the marital bonds, so that all real property (marital home) and personal property issues are resolved with finality and the parties are free to marry again. This is different than a limited divorce, which neither resolves property issues nor allows parties to remarry. When an absolute divorce is granted, the form of property ownership most common to marital homes, known as tenants by the entireties, is also eliminated.
When considering whether to file for an absolute divorce, keep in mind that the burden of proof falls on the party that asks the Court for an absolute divorce (the Plaintiff). In cases where both parties are equally guilty of the marital offense being alleged (i.e. they both committed adultery, they were both cruel and excessively vicious to one another), then both parties are NOT entitled to an absolute divorce from one another. As a practical matter, the only Court that can award an absolute divorce is a Circuit Court like the Circuit Court for Baltimore County. The Law Offices of Amar S. Weisman uses the facts and the law to protect our clients who are in absolute divorce proceedings in Towson.
