Baltimore, Maryland Estate Planning Attorney: How is a Will Affected by Marriage or Divorce?, Maryland Estate Planning Lawyer Attorney Baltimore Maryland Wills TrustsUnder Maryland law a will is not affected simply by a subsequent marriage. But if a child born following that marriage survives the parent, they the will is revoked. A divorce automatically revokes the provisions of the will that pertain to your former spouse, but does not affect other provisions of the will. Thus the provisions benefiting family members of your former spouse will remain in affect.
