What Happens If I Die Without A Will?
Your assets not covered by a valid will, pass to your heirs via intestate laws. Existing California probate laws will determine how your assets are distributed to your heirs. It’s important to understand that your desires for the distribution of your wealth may be vastly different than that provided for under probate law. Making the decision to protect your wealth through a will or a living trust is the best way for you to ensure that your assets are distributed the way you would like.
