If I am separated but it has been less than a year, can I file anything with the court?

Yes.  Even if you do not have grounds for an Absolute Divorce, but you are separated, you have the right to file for custody, visitation, child support, alimony and/or use and possession of a home or car.  You can also ask your spouse to contribute toward the mortgage before you have grounds for divorce.  If you have any questions, you should call one of our Maryland divorce lawyers for a free consultation on any and all family law issues. 


I wanted to give a huge thank you to everyone who assisted with my case. The entire process was convenient and informative. All questions or paperwork I submitted had superior response time. Never any hangups or issues of any kind. It is a nerve rack…
