If I have minor children, or don't have a separation agreement, how long do I have to wait to get divorced in Maryland?

In Maryland, the parties typically must live separate and apart without cohabitation for twelve consecutive months before an absolute divorce can be granted. There are some grounds for divorce, like adultery, that do not require a waiting period, and you can also get divorced immediately if adultery is proven.
