When you die without a will it is the COURT that will decide which family members will inherit your assets & estate and in what proportion. In most cases Courts distribute your estate among your spouse, children, parents, brothers & sisters or other close relatives. If some distant relative or friend files a claim over your estate, then the whole process might end up in a lengthy and painful court battle. Your spouse & children might not be able to access even $2 lying in your bank account till the court decides.

If you die without a will your spouse or children will have to follow a lengthy legal process to get Court order to inherit your estate which can run into weeks, months and even years.

Most people want to distribute their property differently than the Court would distribute it. For example, many people want to leave everything for their spouse and children only or some might also like to leave gifts to friends, neighbours, girlfriends, boyfriends, schools, or charitable organizations – and without a will that will not be possible. If you want other people or organizations to inherit some of your property, or if you want to decide the proportions of your gifts, a will can make sure your wishes are followed.
