Maryland Rules
Title 10. Guardians and Other Fiduciaries
Chapter 100. General Provisions
Effective: January 1, 2022
MD Rules, Rule 10-101
(a) Applicability. Except as otherwise provided by law, the rules in this Title apply to proceedings concerning: (1) the guardianship of minors, their property, or both, whether in a circuit court or an orphans' court, (2) the guardianship of disabled persons, their property, or both; (3) a fiduciary estate; and (4) the distribution of property belonging to an absent or unknown person.
(b) Scope of Jurisdiction. In proceedings under this Title, the court may exercise its jurisdiction generally or for a limited purpose. An investment in a common trust fund by a fiduciary administering an estate subject to the jurisdiction of a court does not bring the administration of the common trust fund under the jurisdiction of the court.
