Legal Separation And Limited Divorce
Maryland Recognizes Limited Divorce
Under the laws of Maryland, couples who no longer can live together, but do not wish to take the formal step of divorce, can file for limited divorce. Limited divorce acts like a legal separation. In limited divorce, issues such as child support, child custody and alimony, or spousal support are resolved on a temporary basis. A limited divorce is not a permanent divorce. You will not be able to remarry and there will still be a marital estate, due to the fact that most property is not divided until the final divorce. Under Maryland law, the grounds to file a limited divorce usually are:
- Constructive desertion
- Voluntary separation
