Planning for the disposition of one’s assets upon death is a difficult topic to discuss. However, if a person dies intestate without a Will their property will be distributed according to a statutory scheme designed by the legislature. That is why it is important to express your wishes in a formal Will so your property will be distributed to the people you desire to receive the property.
