Every marriage is different, and some, due to unforeseen circumstances, may change erratically and become difficult to happily manage. In the past, married couples who wanted to divorce in Maryland needed to wait a full year while separated to file. Close relatives needed to present testimonial evidence to prove that the couple no longer spent their nights together.
Maryland Mutual Consent Law
Now, with the institution of the Mutual Consent law, couples who are divorcing, who have already established a property settlement, including alimony and other domestic arrangements, and who do not have minor children may file as soon as they wish. All that is legally required is that the spouse filing for divorce be present in the courtroom.
Mutual Consent law also eliminates the necessity of hearing testimonials from loved ones regarding the couple’s separation status, which expedites the process altogether. Before the law was instituted, relatives or other loved ones were required to confirm the couple’s full year of separation in court.
