The Process

The Maryland probate process serves a vital purpose. When a resident of Maryland dies, the Maryland Register of Wills with the Orphans' Court oversee the distribution of all assets and belongings left behind. They first appoint a representative to be in charge of the estate, collect and itemize all assets and monetary accounts, ensure all outstanding debts are paid off, and determine the validity of any existing wills. Finally, when the court is satisfied that all other steps have been completed, they authorize the distribution of inheritance funds to the rightful heirs.

Why you may need a probate attorney

Although an attorney is not required by the Courts there may be repercussions for not having representations , most of which result in loss of time and money for your loved ones.
