1. Of or relating to a person who has died without a valid will.
2. One who has died without a will.

In Massachusetts when you die without a Will you are said to have died “intestate.”  If you die intestate, then your assets that are in your own name (your home, your bank accounts and your personal belongings) will be distributed to your “heirs” according to the laws of “intestate succession” in the Commonwealth.

Remember: It is important to write a Will or Trust properly in order to make sure that your assets are passed on in the way that you want them passed on.  Email Dartmouth, Massachusetts Attorney Andrew Garcia at [email protected] to discuss your Will or Trust today.
