The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, “We have shared information on wills before, and this week we are further exploring the topic by sharing CNN's Money Magazine article that defines “Intestate” and “Probate”. The goal of sharing this information is to show victims and their family members that they need to be proactive about establishing a will so that these sorts of things don't happen.
“So why is the Mesothelioma Compensation Center so concerned about diagnosed victims of this rare form of cancer having a will?”
According to Money Magazine, "Dying without a will - known as dying "intestate" - means you have no say over who receives your assets, and can leave your heirs and the court system the complex and costly job of wrangling over who should get what."
If a person dies without a will their assets go into what's called "probate" - an expensive and drawn out legal process which determines who inherits your estate, and can take anywhere from a few months to a few years, depending on how complicated the
So-called intestacy laws vary considerably from state to state. In general, though, if a person dies and leaves a spouse and or their kids their assets, these assets will be split between their surviving mate and children. If the victim is single with no children, then the state is likely to decide who among their blood relatives will inherit their estate.
