Estate Without A Will

 
 
There may be times, when a loved one passes away before establishing a valid will, which is called intestate. They leave behind an estate without a will, which may make the distribution of their property difficult. The Law Offices of Brent Marshall Bickham have extent knowledge with estate planning and filing, in particular. Contact our Ocean Springs, Mississippi office for legal assistance.
 

RULES OF DISSENT AND DISTRIBUTION

With A Surviving Spouse:

- If the deceased does not have any children, the surviving spouse receives their entire estate.

- If the deceased has one child, the surviving spouse and the child each receive one-half of the estate.

- If the deceased has multiple children, the surviving spouse and all the children receive equal shares of the estate.

Without A Surviving Spouse:

- If the deceased has children and no spouse, their children will receive equal shares of the estate.
