Types of Divorce
Whether you are filing for divorce or preparing to face a spouse's claim, your Cohen & Dwin Baltimore divorce lawyer can help you understand the intricacies of the divorce process and provide details on the various types of divorce available within Maryland law.
- Limited Divorce
If a limited divorce is sought, the court orders the parties to separate. As the name implies, this order does not grant a full divorce, but recognizes a legal separation. To qualify for a limited divorce, a case must involve desertion, cruelty or vicious conduct, or ongoing voluntary separation. The court will set forth mandates as to the care of children and the division of property at this time.
- Absolute Divorce
With this type of divorce, a complete termination of marriage is ordered. Qualifications for absolute divorce include adultery, desertion of 12 months or longer, voluntary and mutual separation for 12 months or longer, or separation of two years or longer. As with a limited divorce, the court will make decisions regarding child custody, property division, and other related matters.
