Maine Revised Statutes

§3-204. Demand for notice of order or filing concerning decedent's estate

Any person desiring notice of an order or filing pertaining to a decedent's estate in which he has a financial or property interest may file a demand for notice with the court at any time after the death of the decedent, and may thereupon have notice of such demand given to the personal representative, and shall thereafter receive service of every filing, notice or order to which the demand relates, in such manner and form as the Supreme Judicial Court shall by rule provide. The validity of an order or notice which is issued or a filing which is accepted without compliance with this requirement shall not be affected by the error, but the person receiving the order, giving notice, or making the filing may be liable for any damage caused by the absence of service. The requirement of notice arising from demand under this provision may be waived by the demandant in such manner and form as the Supreme Judicial Court shall by rule provide, and shall cease upon the termination of his interest in the estate.
