Franklin Estate Planning Attorneys
Proudly Serving Clients in the Greater Nashville Area
It’s not uncommon for people to find estate planning to be a difficult concept to consider.

What Happens If I Don’t Have an Estate Plan?
If you die without an estate plan or even a basic will in place, your estate will pass through the probate process. Although estates with only wills also go through probate, the key difference in not having one is that the state’s intestacy laws determine who your legal heirs are and what their inheritances of your estate will be.
In most cases, your children and your spouse will benefit most from intestacy inheritance – which can be a crucial factor if you wished to honor a sibling, nephew, niece, or another relative with an inheritance. Intestacy laws also don’t care for sentimental matters like passing on specific family heirlooms or other items of personal significance to relatives or friends.
Not only can you direct the course of inheritance and distribution of your estate’s property with an estate plan, but doing so can save your loved ones a considerable amount of time and money when it comes to handling your affairs.
