No Will! Now What?

What happens if there is no will?

Too often it happens: a relative or close friend passes without a will. What happens then? Elder law attorney Martha Patterson says California has some specific rules for what happens when there isn’t a will. The rules may be different in other states so check with your legal professional.

Generally if there is no will State law will have a plan for you. Generally that plan says your estate will go, in some particular order, to your children, parents and siblings. It can be a difficult and lengthy and expensive process to settle your estate if there is no will — especially if family members challenge the State.

Elder law attorney Martha Patterson offers a free consultation and $500 off any paid services when you contact her at her website www.ElderLawMom.com and this is something you shouldn’t put off.
