What if you’re married and you need a divorce?
That’s what a number of couples are having to do in Maryland after a court ruled in favor of the Maryland Bar Association.
The bar association’s board voted unanimously Tuesday to change the state’s marriage license form from “Marriage license” to “Divorce” to avoid confusion.
That’s in addition to other changes to the form, such as removing the name of the person you are divorcing from the word “marriage” in the name.
But the changes have come at a cost, since Maryland is one of the few states that requires all couples to submit a marriage license when divorcing.
And it will cost you even more.
