Why it is a Good Idea to Avoid Probate in Maryland
Legal Answers
51 Questions Answered
Q. I am disabled, going through a divorce. Is it possible to stay on my wife's health insurance after divorce?
A: Unfortunately, you will not be able to stay on your spouse's insurance after an absolute divorce. However, you would be able to retain your insurance under a limited divorce. Hope that helps. Good luck!!
Q. On my will, I have my 2 daughters listed as beneficiaries. I want to split everything evenly. On the line for property..
A: I give to my daughters, DAUGHTER 1 and DAUGHTER 2, in as equal shares as possible, my principal place of residence and any real property that I may... I give the balance of my personal and household effects, automobiles and other tangible personal property to my daughters, DAUGHTER 1 and DAUGHTER 2, in as equal shares as possible. To the extent possible, my Personal Representative shall make such division and distribution to said children in accordance with their wishes... I would advise having a separate section for your tangible personal property (contents of your home, your car, anything else that you can physically move). Also, I'd have an attorney look this over--it is not advisable to attempt to write your own will. The clauses above are incomplete but provides you a general sense of what you need. Additional language is necessary to protect you/your estate/assets/beneficiaries. I'm sure my colleagues have additional input that they can provide that will certainly help. Good luck to you!
Q. Whats the next step?
A: Wait for the court to contact you to set up a scheduling conference, which is a conference where you set up dates to get things done. It is advisable that you consult with an attorney to assess whether assistance of counsel is necessary.
