What's considered a specialized divorce?

In Maryland, divorces can be divided into specialized categories. If your divorce falls into one of these categories, it's important you hire an experienced divorce law attorney to handle the legal side of things.

Here are some key terms to understand before filing:

No-Fault Divorce
A no-fault divorce simply means that no one party is responsible for the ending of the marriage, and there was no wrongdoing that resulted in the split.

Contested Divorce
In this situation, you and your spouse are unable to come to an agreement regarding the grounds or terms of your divorce. This can range from disagreements about child custody to one party wanting a divorce while the other doesn't.

Legal Separation
A divorce separation agreement legally separates the two of you but does not result in a legally binding divorce. This isn't required by Maryland law before a divorce, but it can help establish boundaries for you and your partner.
