These are the best resources I’ve found for dealing with divorce in Maryland, including Maryland child support, as well as property division, alimony, and other divorce issues in Maryland.
The Divorceinfo Network Lawyer for Maryland is James J. Gross. Click here to read his FAQ’s about divorce issues in Maryland. Jim was kind enough to tell me about this link to the Maryland Domestic Relations Forms online from the Maryland Judiciary.
If you don’t need a lawyer and just want to file a simple divorce, you can order the forms and do it yourself, or you can get DocuPro to do it for you.
You can also use Maryland Divorce Online, which offers the following advantages: (1) You prepare the papers online without paying any money; (2) You decide only after the papers are prepared whether you want to pay for them; and (3) the charge is only $69.95 for all the required documents, including the marital settlement agreement. Looks like a pretty good deal to me.
James J. Gross has a nice book out called How to File for Divorce in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. Here’s a Maryland Child Support Calculator from AllLaw.com.
