When a person dies without a will, the courts and legislation will decide who is entitled to receive their estate and how much they will receive. If no intestate successors are found, the government will inherit the estate.
If you pass away without a will and your spouse is also deceased or incapable of being a parent to your infant children, the court will appoint a caregiver for them. This caregiver may not be the individual you would have selected as the children’s guardian, and any disputes over guardianship can lead to unnecessary expenses for your estate.
The executor/trustee is designated by a will to manage your assets after you pass away.
The beneficiaries, or those who will inherit your assets, are identified through a will.
Creating a will reduces estate expenses that arise when someone passes away without one.
