Maine Revised Statutes

§2-114. Persons related to decedent through 2 lines

A person who is related to the decedent through 2 lines of relationship is entitled to only a single share based on the relationship which would entitle him to the larger share. In cases where such an heir would take equal shares, he shall be entitled to the equivalent of a single share. The court shall equitably apportion the amount equivalent in value to the share denied such heir by the provisions of this section. [1979, c. 540, §1 (NEW).]
