When There is No Will
Without a will, the state in which you reside decides how to distribute your assets to your beneficiaries according to its laws. This is known as dying intestate, and the resulting settlement, or probate, process may not produce the results that you would prefer for your survivors. You can prevent this from happening by having documents drafted that reflect your wishes.
Wills aren’t usually complex legal documents, nor are they difficult to draft. Regardless of your age or relative wealth, everyone should have a will – and amend it often as your assets grow. Once your personal wealth reaches the probate threshold, then a revocable living trust should be considered. We’re happy to answer any questions you may have.
