Probate is the legal proceeding by which one settles a decedent’s estate.
In most cases Maryland probate is highly structured and Court-supervised.
The personal representative is bonded (insured).
The Register audits the inventory and account. And each interested person may obtain copies of these papers, and by law has a period of time in which to file exceptions.
Maryland probate is designed to provide interested persons with important legal protections and more security than might otherwise be available to them in non-supervised proceedings.
