Intestacy

Intestacy is when a person dies without a legal will or trust in place. Click here to learn more about wills and trusts.

 

In such an event, a personal representative and beneficiaries must petition the court to be appointed and named. Depending upon the type and amount of assets in the deceased’s name, the estate would normally have to go through probate.

 

Dying without a will or trust that details your wishes leaves family, a close friend or Oregon law to determine what happens to  remaining property and assets from your estate once all debts and creditors have been paid. This can be a hardship at an emotional time. It can also be costly and time consuming for those you leave behind.
