Q.What is intestate succession?

A.Each state provides an estate plan for a person who dies without a Will. These state laws are commonly known as the laws of intestate succession. The laws of intestate succession set forth who inherits from an intestate estate. Each state has its own set of intestate succession laws. In most states, the surviving spouse, children, parents, siblings, nieces and nephews, and next of kin inherit, in that order.
