Many divorces are not this messy. A no-fault divorce can occur when neither spouse is at fault for the ending of the marriage. The grounds for a no-fault divorce in Maryland include a continuous 12-month separation, with no sexual relations during this time.
How Planta & Satin Can Assist You with Your Uncontested Divorce
Filing for an uncontested divorce in Maryland or Washington DC can be a faster and more affordable way to legally end your marriage, if you are well prepared. With an uncontested divorce, the two spouses are in agreement regarding matters such as:
- Child custody, visitation, and support
- Distribution of marital assets
- Spousal support
- Division of debts and liabilities
- Any other marital concerns
If there are any disputes regarding these terms, the divorce goes from uncontested to contested, and the spouses will need the courts to rule on these matters, which will extend the divorce process.
When couples are in agreement regarding these matters, they might be tempted to file the necessary no fault divorce paperwork with the Maryland courts on their own, but a safer option is to enlist the services of Planta & Satin.
