Loved One

What Happens if a
Dies
Without a Will?

According to the laws in the state of New York, the government
should determine where and to whom all your possessions will go
after the day when you passed away. Normally, when you haven't
drafted a will, it should go to your family (spouse or children).
However, if it is not possible, your closest relative will have the
privilege to take care of your possessions. So, at this point, you may
want to go over your family and closest relative or friends and look
for the person who would be rightful to take care of your properties
both material and financial. On the other hand, what happens if you
were not able to draft your will and the saddest moment comes? As
you read on, you will be able to have a glimpse on what would
happen when you leave Earth.

What is it?
You have to keep in mind that
whenever a person dies without
having a will eventually leaves
everyone clueless. Think of it as a
declaration of a person's wish/es
not just for his/her funeral and
burial but a will is drafted to have a
personal instruction with regard to
the distribution of the properties
and all possessions including the
responsibilities to your family,
closest relative or friends.

Significance of Drafting a Will
Remember, if you haven't drafted your last
will and testament, as discussed earlier in this
article, it would go directly to your family, if
not your closest relative. This can be a great
burden for them to proceed on what to do.
Therefore, it is always wise to draft your will.
In case you do not have any idea on how to
do this piece of document, you can always
contact an elder lawyer so you will be
directed on what to do. Drafting a will means
that you have to choose a representative/s to
make final decisions. If in any case, these
people involved could not decide
unanimously, it is time where the court has to
appoint an executor of the estate. Thereby,
the deceased will still be given his right even if
he is no longer around. In other words, a will
is drafted to avoid conflicts and confusion
when a loved one passes away.

So, what happens when a loved one dies without leaving a will? It would
vary from different situations. Most of the time, when it is clear that the
surviving spouse of the children is clear to be chosen heirs, these people
will be appointed by the judge.

What are the effects?
Usually, people who feel they
have to be executors can lead to
family discord and sometimes
court battles. It can further divide
the family thus adding to the grief
from their loved one's death.
Although at times even drafting a
will can still lead to conflicts and
battles, without having one would
make it even worse.

In conclusion, it is always wise to draft your will the soonest possible
time. You can ask assistance from http://lamkinelderlaw.com/ -- these
people are experts in leading you to the right path and keep order in
your family the moment you would no longer be with them.
