Probate in Maryland: Explained
There is a considerable amount of confusion regarding what probate is and exactly what it involves. In the simplest terms, probate is the formal legal process through which a deceased person’s will is proven to be valid and their assets are identified and distributed to their heirs. In other words, their estate will be processed through Maryland’s legal system and then settled.
Probate varies on a case-to-case basis. While the process can be tedious and frustrating, an uncontested will usually makes its way through Maryland’s administrative probate process within a matter of months. On the other, should a dispute arise, probate can take years. In our state, disputed wills are typically handled by the Maryland Orphans’ Court. When a will is contested or another issue arises, it is imperative that you seek guidance from an experienced probate litigation lawyer as soon as possible. You have limited time to protect your rights.
