Divorce can be a very traumatic experience for some people. It can trigger a lot of uncomfortable feelings and emotions including grief, anger, anxiety, frustration, and fear.

When Can You Get a Mutual Consent Divorce in Maryland?

If there are no conflicts between the parties, they are able to agree on all issues concerning the divorce. Under Maryland law, one of the grounds for an absolute divorce is mutual consent.

Parties can get a divorce on the grounds of mutual consent if:

  • They are able to agree on and resolve all issues relating to alimony, distribution of property, and the care, custody, access, and support of minor or dependent children.
  • The parties submit to the court a written settlement agreement along with a completed court-approved child support worksheet, if there are minor or dependent children from the marriage.
  • Neither party approaches the court to set aside the settlement agreement before the divorce hearing in court.
  • If there are minor or dependent children, the court is satisfied that the settlement terms regarding the children are in their best interest.

Divorce can be very complex. Even if the grounds of your divorce is mutual consent, it is always worthwhile to have an experienced divorce lawyer look at your settlement agreement to ensure that your rights are adequately protected.
