The term "No-Fault Divorce" is used to describe no-fault grounds to legally end a marriage in Maryland. These grounds are based on the parties separating either voluntarily or meeting certain statutory requirements. The statutory separation grounds are met where the parties remain separated for one full year, continuously without cohabitation. Maryland divorce lawyers need to present evidence that the period of voluntary separation has been met to obtain a no-fault divorce. A voluntary separation occurs where the parties become separated by mutual agreement, without cohabitation and with the intent to have the marriage terminate by operation of law. The main difference between the two is that the voluntary separation requires the separation to be mutual and voluntary, and forms the basis for a limited divorce, while the statutory one year separation forms the basis for an absolute divorce. If it is your intent to end your marriage through no fault grounds you should discuss the legal requirements for a separation with an experienced no fault divorce lawyer.
