How Do I Prove Insanity?

A divorce based on the ground of insanity is possible if:

  1. The court finds that the spouse has been confined in a mental institution, hospital, or other similar institution for at least three years before the filing of the complaint for divorce,
  2. The court determines from the testimony of at least two physicians who are competent in psychiatry that the insanity is incurable and that there is no hope of recovery, and
  3. One of the parties has resided in Maryland for at least two years before the filing of the complaint for divorce.

Divorces based on this ground are extremely rare.
