Maryland Probate Litigation Attorney

What is Probate?

When a person dies, their estate will enter into probate which is the process of closing all financial affairs. During probate, any creditors will be given a chance to resolve any outstanding debts. If a creditor does not respond then they cannot ask for payment at a later date, instead, the debt would then be considered non-existent and wiped clean.

Probate can happen very quickly depending on the type of estate plan a person has in place, or it can take several months or maybe longer. However, once probate has ended, then a title is considered clear and the assets are then divided according to the will or trust in an estate plan. Probate is never a simple process, and there can be many legal issues that may arise that will require the legal knowledge and skill of an Annapolis probate litigation attorney.

These issues may include, but are not limited to the following:

  • A contested will
  • Mental incapacity of deceased to have written a will
  • Undue influence when a will was written or amended
  • Allegations of executor malfeasance
