A parent's concern for his or her child's future is somewhat different when that child is disabled in some way. These parents have to not only consider how to best leave their children their inheritances but also how the inheritances will be handled on behalf of their disabled children. A special needs trust is a good way for Maryland parents to protect their special needs children after they are gone.
There are many legal documents available to include in an estate plan. However, those that are appropriate will depend on a person's specific circumstances, in Maryland or in any other state. They should also reflect any recent changes to estate planning laws. Recent changes in the law have made the revocable living trust a more popular estate planning tool than before.
