    Answered . "Papers" are not required to be considered legally separated in Maryland. You are considered separated in Maryland when cohabitation ceases, so if the person is not residing with their spouse, or having marital relations with their spouse, then they are separated. If there is a divorce case pending, you can check court records to determine the status of the case.
