What Constitutes an Uncontested Divorce in Maryland?
When both parties agree on all the crucial terms of the divorce, it is considered uncontested and is likely to be finalized much more quickly.
The issues that must be decided upon in the separation agreement are:
- Child custody and visitation
- Child support
- Division of assets and debts
- Spousal support
- Any additional matter specific to your marriage
The most common ground for divorce cited with uncontested divorces is separation. If both spouses have voluntarily been living apart for one year, the couple can file a Joint Request for an Uncontested Divorce Hearing.
The Process of an Uncontested Divorce in Maryland
The spouse who files for divorce is responsible for completing the forms provided by the Maryland Courts. These documents are highly involved and have detailed instructions that take time and careful consideration to complete. Even a simple mistake can cause lengthy delays in the divorce proceedings.
It is recommended to have an Annapolis divorce lawyer handle these forms as the documents call for a thorough understanding of the nuances of domestic law. Having an attorney who is aware of the important deadlines and procedures of the court can ensure that your divorce proceedings occur as smoothly and quickly as possible.
