In response to the demand for more informative posts, Mr. Cormier has added an article to his content library that focuses on the probate process in Maryland, specifically covering Rockville. According to Mr. Cormier, probate rules and regulations vary by state, which is why the material emphasizes what makes probate different in this area.

Mr. Cormier stated that, unlike other states that have adopted the Uniform Probate Code, or UPC, in its entirety, Maryland has chosen to create its own laws and procedures that govern the administration of estates within the state.
“Maryland has its own code where all laws pertaining to probate emanate,” Mr. Cormier explained. “The code specifies the requirements for probating an estate in areas like Rockville and has the final say on matters such as the appointment of an executor, payment of debts, distribution of assets, and more.”
The article covers what Mr. Cormier considers “the most important things to know” about the probate process in Maryland. For instance, it offers a brief discussion on the issue of small estates, particularly what qualifies as “small” based on state probate laws.
A more extensive discussion is dedicated to the personal representative, specifically on how one is nominated and their role in asset distribution.
Understanding the complexity of the process, Mr. Cormier also advises readers to seek the expertise of a probate attorney or realtor for professional guidance in navigating the probate process.
