Requirements for Separation Agreements in Maryland

Separation Agreements are a critical part of the divorce process in Maryland and many other states. They are sometimes referred to as “property settlement agreements” or “marital settlement agreements”. To be considered legally sufficient under Maryland law, a separation agreement must address all issues between the parties, including:

  • Property and asset division
  • Child custody & visitation, including a detailed parenting plan
  • Child support
  • Spousal support (or “alimony”)
  • Continuation of health insurance

Required for Absolute and Limited Divorces

Separation agreements are required whether you are seeking an absolute or limited divorce. The court will review the agreement prior to approving the final divorce order (or “divorce decree”). 

Protect Your Rights

It is best to consult an experienced divorce attorney who is familiar with the legal requirements of separation agreements. By doing so, you can protect your rights and avoid issues in the future. Even if your separation has been amicable, each party should work with an attorney to ensure the agreement is fair.
