DIVORCE LITIGATION – HOWARD COUNTY, MARYLAND
Getting a divorce is a very tough decision to make. Even in the best circumstances, emotions run high and minor disagreements can get blown out of proportion. When your relationship with your spouse reaches a point where you are considering divorce you are probably not capable of separating your emotions from the facts that are needed to create reasonable and fair solutions. At that time, it is very important to work with a lawyer that will understand your situation and help you make informed decisions.

GROUNDS FOR DIVORCE
In Maryland, there are two types of divorce: fault based divorce and no fault divorce. In a no fault divorce, the spouse requesting the divorce does not have to prove that the other spouse did something wrong. On the other hand, in a fault based divorce the requesting spouse must prove cruelty of treatment, excessively vicious conduct, abuse, adultery, or desertion.
Maryland Law allows for people to pursue multiple reasons or grounds for divorce and there are benefits, disadvantages, and burdens of proof associated with each ground for divorce. At your initial consultation, all of this will be discussed so that the client can make better decisions from the beginning of the case.
“How quickly can I get divorced?” That will mostly depend on how quickly you and your spouse can come to agreements on some or all of the issues. The more you agree upon the faster your case is resolved, the less it costs, and the better you and your soon-to-be-ex-spouse will get along in the future. *** Mutual Consent Divorce – IF you do not have minor children, the Mulinazzi Law Office can help you negotiate, draft, and sign a viable binding agreement to resolve all of the issues in your marriage. Once that happens our lawyers can get your case through the courthouse extremely fast based on a mutual consent divorce. The process for getting a mutual consent divorce can differ from Howard County to Prince George’s County and throughout Central Maryland so it’s important to have attorneys who know how to negotiate the policies and timelines of each Court. Attorneys at Mulinazzi Law Office assisted a few clients to get divorced in as little as three weeks.
TIMELINES IN A DIVORCE CASE – “How long will the divorce case take?”
There are ways to hasten the final divorce hearing date but the attorneys at Mulinazzi Law Office will listen to you and work with you to make sure that you are only in hurry to get things done right. After all, the timespan from the beginning to the end of the divorce is not as important as the ensuring that your rights are protected along the way. Many different factors influence the timeline of your case. For example, where you file for divorce (what County), the decisions or agreements made along the way, and the services that are needed for your case impact the timeline for the final outcome. The Mulinazzi Law Office works to get you the best result for your family outside of Court but if your matter must go to Court, then the entire staff at Mulinazzi Law Office will help you be ready. You will know what to expect, you will know the most likely outcome, and you your case will be prepared.
At the first meeting, the attorneys at Mulinazzi Law Office explain the timeline expectations in detail and empower you with reasonable expectations along the way.
