Maryland Estate Administration Attorney: What You Should Do With The Will

Maryland Attorney Stephen J. Reichert,, copyrights, business, property deeds, estate planning, property tax appeals“What Do I Do With The Will?” is a common question in Maryland probate.

The decedent’s Will must be delivered to the Register of Wills for the county in which they were domiciled. Often times an attorney is holding the Will for safe keeping and thus, under Maryland law, the attorney must deliver the Will. Only the most recent Will should be filed unless there are unusual circumstances such as a family member contesting the legitimacy of the Will. Failure to deliver the Will can result in the custodian of the Will being personally responsible and thus having damages assessed by the court. In most instances the Will is already on file with the county as Maryland is one of the states that allows all of us to submit our Wills for safekeeping during our lifetimes.
