  • § 20-43. Bigamous marriages void without decree.


All marriages which are prohibited by law on account of either of the parties having a former wife or husband then living shall be absolutely void, without any decree of divorce, or other legal process.

  • § 7-102. Limited divorce.

(a)Grounds for limited divorce.- The court may decree a limited divorce on the following grounds:

(1) cruelty of treatment of the complaining party or of a minor child of the complaining party;

(2) excessively vicious conduct to the complaining party or to a minor child of the complaining party;

(3) desertion; or

(4) voluntary separation, if:

(i) the parties are living separate and apart without cohabitation; and

(ii) there is no reasonable expectation of reconciliation.

(b)Attempts at reconciliation.- As a condition precedent to granting a decree of limited divorce, the court may:

(1) require the parties to participate in good faith in the efforts to achieve reconciliation that the court prescribes; and

(2) assess the costs of any efforts to achieve reconciliation that the court prescribes.

(c)Time during which decree is effective.- The court may decree a divorce under this section for a limited time or for an indefinite time.

(d)Revocation of decree.- The court that granted a decree of limited divorce may revoke the decree at any time on the joint application of the parties.

(e)Decree of limited divorce on prayer for absolute divorce.- If an absolute divorce is prayed and the evidence is sufficient to entitle the parties to a limited divorce, but not to an absolute divorce, the court may decree a limited divorce.

  • ALM GL ch. 273, § 8.  Child and Spouse — Want of Custody of Child No Defense.

In proceedings under sections one or fifteen against a parent, relative to any minor child, it shall not of itself be a defence that the defendant has ceased to have custody or the right to custody of such child on his own acquiescence or by judicial action. The legal duty of the parent or parents to support a minor child shall continue notwithstanding the absence of a court decree ordering them or either of them to pay for the support of said child and notwithstanding any court decree granting custody of such child to another.
