Maryland Estate Planning: What does “My descendants who survive me per stirpes” mean?, Maryland Estate Planning Lawyer Attorney Baltimore Maryland Wills TrustsWhen having a Will or Trust drafted, if you agree to include this language your assets will be distributed equally to your lineal descendants who are blood relatives or legally adopted. Your children will be the first to receive your assets. If any of your children die before you, the percentage of assets due to that child will be divided equally among that person’s surviving children, if any. If that person has no living children, those assets will be divided equally among your remaining living children. This option eliminates the need to update the names of any child born or adopted after you make this designation.
