What is Intestacy, and Why Should You Avoid It?

If you die without a valid will, your estate is said to be "intestate". The assets of an Estate that is intestate are divided according to state law, after paying the decedent's taxes and other debts and expenses. The process is overseen by the Probate Court. Probate can be a complex and multi-step process. The Court doesn't know your family relationships, so their decisions may not reflect what you would have wanted to happen. Take control.
