Most of us do not want to think about our mortality. However, we cannot escape the reality that every living person will one day die. Whether we like it or not, the property we own at our death will be inherited by another person or entity. If we do not leave a will directing who we want to inherit our property, the law of the state we live in will make the decision for us. Here, we will examine how state intestacy laws impact our assets at death and explore why most of us need to take the time and effort to create a last will and testament (in case you start without a ready-to-go Will Template). Keep reading if you are wondering about wills law, probate court, and how the legal rules will affect family members upon your death.
