Find out who will receive any person’s intestate estate and how much of that estate each heir will receive.
The Maryland Intestacy Evaluator℠ uses Maryland’s Estates and Trusts Code to first determine the legal heirs or next of kin for any person’s intestate estate, then to determine the legal distribution of that estate among those heirs. Division into maternal and paternal shares are completed at the grandparent level and also again at the great-grandparent level.
User provided data is evaluated by referencing the Maryland Uniform Probate Code to examine each potential level of relation for a qualified heir through the last eligible level of relation before escheat, which are the decedent’s stepchildren and issue.
Each user response is evaluated in comparison with the applicable intestate laws and all prior responses to determine the most relevant information that must be solicited next to determine the legal heirs of the current estate, as well as the dollar value that each heir is entitled to receive.
