Maryland Wills & Estate Planning: Disposing of Property Restrictions, Maryland Estate Planning Lawyer Attorney Baltimore Maryland Wills TrustsAre there any restrictions in the state of Maryland on the manner in which a will may dispose of property and can a wife or child be disinherited?

A surviving spouse has certain rights that could alter the way in which you intended to dispose of your assets. Maryland laws prevent a spouse from being disinherited, however children are not protected in this manner under Maryland probate law and they may be disinherited.

Also, the Rule Against Perpetuities limits how long property may be held in a trust but aside from that there are very few restrictions on how property can be disposed of. Also, in Maryland you can waive application of the rule against perpetuities in your estate planning documents.
