What Do I Need to Do before Filing for a Divorce in Maryland?

Before filing for divorce, you would want to schedule an appointment with an attorney in our office to discuss the following issues. One, you want to make sure that you are a resident of the state of Maryland for at least six months. Two, you will want to ensure that you have grounds for divorce, and when you come in to meet with us, we can discuss which grounds apply to your particular set of circumstances. Three, you want to have an awareness as to those assets you and your spouse own both jointly and individually. And four and probably most importantly, you want to have a knowledge of your expectation for your children and their circumstances. At our meeting when you come in to meet with us, we can discuss these in further detail.
