Yes! Yes! Yes! For example, if you do not have a will (this is called intestate), the State of North Carolina will determine who will receive your assets, regardless of whether you want them to have a share or not. For example, if you die intestate and are married without children, with one or both parents still alive, your spouse may receive the first $100,000 of your estate and one-half of the remainder, and your parents may receive the other half.
If you are married with one child, your spouse would receive the first $60,000 and one-half of the remainder, with the child receiving the other half. If you have two or more children, you would receive $60,000 plus one-third of the remainder, with your children sharing the remaining two-thirds. * NCGS Chapter 29, Intestate Succession
Why have the State of North Carolina decide who receives your assets when you can call Clarity Law and determine who you want to receive your hard-earned assets.
