What Is A Will?
A will is an estate planning document that directs how an individual’s estate will be distributed upon his or her death. A will designates how and to whom property is to be distributed, as well as other preferences to be carried out upon an individual’s death.
What Happens When Someone Dies Without A Will?
When an individual dies without a will, the state takes on the duty of distributing his or her estate. This is known as dying “intestate.” The process of administering an estate when the deceased did not have a will can be complex and difficult for family members, as they have little or no control over the proceedings.
When someone dies without a will and there are no immediate family members, the aunts, uncles and cousins may be the beneficiaries. Find out more about kinship.
Creating A Will Doesn’t Have To Be Hard
Creating a will is a task that is easy to put off. People come up with all types of excuses to delay creating a will. But it does not have to be a dreaded process. When you work with an experienced estate planning lawyer, the process can be swift and painless.
