Limited Same-Sex Divorce

Limited divorce and absolute divorce are available in Maryland. A limited divorce formalizes the separation of the parties without a significant separation period. While it does not end the marriage or lead to property division, it allows the court to intervene and determine spousal support, child support, child custody and visitation, and temporary possession of the marital home.

Grounds include:

  • Mutual and voluntary separation
  • Constructive desertion (this means that one spouse's behavior was such that it forced the other party to leave the marital home)
  • Cruel treatment
  • Excessively vicious conduct

Absolute Same-Sex Divorce

In an absolute divorce, the parties must have lived separately or apart for at least one year. It finalizes a marital dissolution and determines alimony, custody, visitation, support and property distribution, including the division of co-mingled assets and pensions, IRAs and 401(k)s.

Grounds include:

  • Adultery
  • Mutual and voluntary separation
  • Desertion or constructive desertion
  • Cruel treatment or excessively vicious conduct
  • Insanity
  • Criminal conviction
