What Effect Does Getting a Divorce Have On My Will?
Under Maryland law, if you have a will in existence at the time you get an absolute divorce, the provisions in the will relating to your ex-spouse are considered to be automatically revoked. The only two exceptions to this are if your will or if your divorce decree explicitly state otherwise.
This article is general in nature and you should check with a lawyer in your community for specific legal advice once the facts of your specific situation are taken into account.
The Maryland courts will always determine child custody based on the best interests of the children.
