Maryland Residency Requirements For Divorce

One of the parties must live in the state of Maryland in order to file for Divorce in this state. However, the grounds as a general rule do not have to occur in Maryland. For example, if one of the parties commits adultery in another state or country you may still file in Maryland as long as one of the parties is a Maryland resident for at least 1 year.  Military personnel that treat Maryland as their home state may file in Maryland even even stationed out of the state.  If the ground for divorce occurred in Maryland, you only need currently live in Maryland at the time you file for divorce. So if you then move after the filing then Maryland Court can still grant the divorce if the allegations of divorce are proved.

Generally you should file in the county where you live. There are exceptions and you may which to consult with a lawyer about your specific situation.  The information contained in this article is general in nature and does not constitute legal advice.
