Maryland’s authoritative guide to divorce.

It is common for clients to ask a divorce lawyer “how quickly can I get into court?” This is a misguided question. In Maryland, there is no longer a one year waiting period for a divorce if certain criteria are met and the couple has the right documentation. The real work of divorce is not done in the court, it is in the process of creating a “Marital Settlement Agreement.”
