Remove Yourself as Personal Representative, Maryland

Probate_Estate_Administration_Maryland_Lawyer_Stephen_J_ReichertFor various reasons the Personal Representative, who could also be an attorney, may wish to resign and be removed from the position. Each state has specific guidelines under the law and it is important that you look at the law for the state in which the estate is being administered.

In Maryland the law requires the Personal Representative to resign by filing a written notice with all interested persons to the estate. Notice should be made by register mail. In addition, if you have e-mail addresses for the interested persons (you should) an e-mail to each is also appropriate. Once twenty days have passed since all interested persons received postal notice you must then file written notice to the Register of Wills in the Maryland county in which the estate is being administered. While not required, it is wise to check with the Register of Wills a week later to make certain your request was received and granted.
