filing for divorce in Maryland

How long does it take after you are seperated for a year to file for divorce in Maryland? I think we will be filing on June 25th. I am just trying to figure out when my divorce will be offical.

You may file after being separated for one year where the basis claimed is one year voluntary separation. This is a non-fault ground. If one party does not agree then you may file after two years under the basis of two year involuntary separation.

You should consider having an attorney review your situation to ensure that your rights are being protected.
