Maryland Separation Agreement Attorney
In Maryland, in most cases a couple must be separated for a year before an absolute divorce decree is granted. Even then, if there are outstanding disputes over the division of property, child custody, and other matters, it can take longer. If the parties can come to a separation agreement concerning these issues at any time after they are physically separated, it can greatly speed up a final resolution. At the time of the divorce, the terms of the separation agreement are incorporated into the decree and become enforceable by law.
