Changes in Maryland Law

Maryland Law recently changed to allow a divorce if the parties:  a. mutually consent to divorce b. do not have any minor children in common c. execute, sign and submit to the court a written settlement agreement relating to alimony and the distribution of property d. do not file a pleading to set aside the settlement agreement prior to the divorce hearing e. appear before the court at the absolute divorce hearing.

This new law will greatly speed up the process of obtaining uncontested and simple divorces.
