PROBATE

Probate is the legal process of administering a deceased person’s estate. In Maryland, each county has an Orphans’ court that supervises probate to ensure that all valid claims and taxes are paid and to ensure that timely distribution of the assets is made to the beneficiaries named in the Will or to the heirs at law. A Personal Representative is appointed by the court to handle the administration of the probate. The Personal Representative is responsible for collecting and appraising the assets of the estate; filing an Inventory with the court; paying claims, taxes, and expenses of administration; filing interim Accounts; and distributing the assets to the designated beneficiaries or heirs. As this is often a difficult time for family members, we can assist the named Personal Representative with all those duties. Please contact us should you need assistance with any of the following:
