What to Do If You Have No-Fault Grounds for Divorce

No-Fault Grounds for Divorce

Sometimes, married couples fall out of love and no matter how much they try to salvage the relationship; it just isn’t working anymore. Deciding to divorce and go through complicated legal matters might be difficult. But in the end, it’s what’s best for all parties involved.

Filing for absolute divorce in Maryland without proper fault grounds can pose as a challenge for your amicable separation. However, divorce laws in the state do recognize the no-fault grounds for divorce. This means that neither of you will have to prove in court that one person is at fault. Any lawyer in Maryland will advise you to live separately for a period of 12 months without interruption and no sexual relations to be able to obtain an absolute divorce under the no-fault grounds. “Irreconcilable differences” or “irreparable breakdown of the marriage” are not accepted in Maryland court as no-fault grounds.

Either spouse has to file and formally claim that you have not been living together. It is not required to prove in court that there is no possibility or chance of reconciliation in the future.
