What happens if I die without a will?

Question: What happens if I die without a will?

Answer: If you die without a will and do not have any property then there really is not much that your family would need to do. However if you do have property, then a family member would need to go to the probate court and be appointed the administrator of your estate and that person would then be responsible for transferring the property under the laws of intestacy. Each state has the laws of intestacy that provide that if you die without a will it identifies which family members will receive your property upon your death.
