Dying without a Will

What happens if you die without a will? The short answer is it's usually messy and drawn out, so for the sake of your loved ones, try to avoid it. 

If you die without having a will you are said to have died "intestate". Generally, spouses and children of the deceased must share between them in accordance with a formula. 

It's also important to understand that assets which are located in or connected to other jurisdictions may not to be distributed in accordance with rules in those other places. 

An administrator to the estate must be appointed to by the court before he or she has the authority to deal with the estate in any way. 

Being an administrator can be a daunting task and it's recommended to get specific legal advice.
