Monkton Divorce Lawyers
Supporting Monkton Families Through Family Law Matters
Formerly, divorce proceedings in Maryland could not begin until the couple spent a total of one year without sleeping in the same residence. Testimonial evidence by witnesses was also required to confirm the one-year separation.
Times have changed, and so have the laws regarding divorce in the state. If the couple interested in filing for divorce does not possess minor children, and has finalized a property settlement, they can proceed with the divorce without the wait.
Mutual Consent Law
While the prospect of divorce may be a serious endeavor that is comprised of many decisions and considerations, the law titled “Mutual Consent” increases the speed at which a couple can file for divorce. If the couple established the parameters of their property settlement and alimony arrangement, as well as other important issues, they may proceed.
Witness testimonies, which previously were required to move along the divorce, are no longer necessary. Usually, relatives acted as witnesses in proving that the couple did not sleep in the same home and were indeed separated. Now, when divorce is sought, only the spouse filing for divorce must present the account of the demise of the marriage in court.
Divorce Is a Big Change
Despite the new ease in achieving a divorce in Maryland, this does not diminish the fact that filing for divorce is a life-changing event that requires much consideration. With the spate of decisions you must make in embarking on the next chapter of your life, finding a compassionate Monkton divorce lawyer to guide you through the process will help immeasurably in negotiating terms and establishing agreements.
