There’s an old saying that “if you don’t make a will, the state makes one for you.”
This means that if you don’t direct the distribution of your assets upon your death with a Will, the laws of the State will direct who receives your assets and how. For some people, the law may distribute your property as you already wish. However, in practice, there may be numerous unintended consequences to the default intestacy laws.
