Wills give you control over how you want your property distributed, and who you want to control your estate. They can help you keep your expenses low, and can help establish your wishes if you have minor children. Montgomery Law understands how Virginia law works and are ready to help you with these decisions. This can help your estate from falling into the hands of the government.
Dying Without a Will Leads to Intestate Succession
Under Virginia law, those who die without a will are “intestate,” and there is an order for inheritance. If a person dies without a will, one third of the assets go to the surviving spouse. The remaining two thirds go to the children. If there is no surviving spouse, all assets pass to the children and descendants. If there is no spouse or children, the assets go to the deceased’s father or mother. If the mother and father have passed, the deceased’s siblings inherit the assets.
