Uncontested divorce process in Bethesda, Maryland
The process for uncontested divorce in Maryland is not much more than a formality in which the court affirms the settlement agreement the spouses have already signed. The process of reaching that agreement can involve a traditional negotiation where each party has an attorney, or mediation or collaborative divorce, where parties work together cooperatively to come to agreement. The Law Office of Stacy B. Talbott is experienced in all methods of dispute resolution and can advise you which process is best suited to your circumstances. Maryland now recognizes a Mutual Consent divorce. There is no separation period required and if the spouses have signed a comprehensive Agreement and both wish to be divorced, the Court will enter a divorce even if you are still living together.
A limited divorce, also known as a legal separation, can give some of the benefits of divorce to couples who, for whatever reason, are not ready to finalize an absolute divorce. If you are having difficulty resolving your divorce issues with your spouse, a limited divorce can be an intermediate step. In many cases, the legal separation agreement can be the basis for your uncontested divorce settlement agreement later on.
