Maryland’s authoritative guide to divorce.

The answer is not clear-cut, it depends. Many divorcing spouses, or parents with children in common, hire attorneys to help them through their divorce rather than navigating the process by themselves. Parents with child custody or child support issues are more likely to hire a lawyer or mediator while those without minor children, marital property or alimony issues are more likely to attempt resolution by themselves. Before you decide whether to represent yourself, get educated about your rights and options.
