Whether you are a single person, or married, having an estate plan in place is a must. Should you fail to prepare an estate, the laws of Maryland or DC will determine how your estate is distributed between your heirs. We will take a look at your current financial status as well as review your future plans and help you determine what steps to take to prepare the best estate plan to help you retain control of your estate distribution rather than leave these highly personal decisions to the courts. Call our Upper Marlboro, MD based law firm today!
We have also helped individuals who have been asked to administer an estate on behalf of a loved one. We know the probate process can be confusing and we are here to provide the guidance you need from presenting a will to the probate court, to filing the final estate tax return.
Executors of an estate have a legal obligation to follow the terms of a decedent's will and face harsh penalties for a failure to do so. We can help make sure you meet all the required deadlines for notification to heirs and the courts.
