Divorce Litigation

Maryland Divorce Attorneys

Getting a divorce is a very tough decision to make. Even in the best circumstances, emotions run high and minor disagreements can get blown out of proportion. When your relationship with your spouse reaches a point where you are considering divorce you are probably not capable of separating your emotions from the facts that are needed to create reasonable and fair solutions.  At that time, it is very important to work with a lawyer that will understand your situation and help you make informed decisions.

Grounds for Divorce

In Maryland, there are two types of divorce: fault based divorce and no fault divorce. In a no fault divorce, the spouse requesting the divorce does not have to prove that the other spouse did something wrong. On the other hand, in a fault based divorce the requesting spouse must prove cruelty of treatment, excessively vicious conduct, abuse, adultery, or desertion.

Maryland Law allows for people to pursue multiple reasons or grounds for divorce and there are benefits, disadvantages, and burdens of proof associated with each ground for divorce. At your initial consultation all of this will be discussed so that the client can make better decisions from the beginning of the case.

Timelines in a Divorce Case

The timespan from the beginning to the end of the divorce is not as important as the ensuring that your rights are protected along the way. Many different factors influence the timeline of your case. For example, where you file for divorce (what County), the decisions or agreements made along the way, and the services that are needed for your case hasten or delay the final outcome.

The attorneys at Mulinazzi Law Office explain the timeline expectations in detail at the initial consultation and empower you with reasonable expectations along the way.
