What are grounds for divorce in Maryland?

Video Transcription:

There are fault and no-fault grounds for an absolute divorce in Maryland. Fault grounds include adultery, cruelty, excessively vicious conduct, actual desertion, or constructive desertion. No-fault grounds in Maryland include 12-month separation, or what’s commonly known as a mutual consent divorce. For mutual consent divorce, you need to have a separation agreement that takes care of all of the issues remaining the parties, as well as their debts and assets. Both parties have to be present for the hearing, and there have to be no minor children involved.
