One thing the Maryland legislature accomplished this year was streamlining Maryland’s probate process for small estates. This new small estate law, SB No. 535, which becomes effective on October 1st. Under this law, it will be much easier for survivors to deal with property left by a person who has died. You now may be able to convey larger amounts of property using this new shortcut, saving precious time and money.
Our lawyers become probate lawyers in wrongful death cases where we need to open up an estate for the decedent.
