Intestate Succession In Mississippi: What To Know
When someone dies without a last will and testament, they are said to have died intestate. When this happens, the court takes control of the decedent’s estate and distributes it according to Mississippi’s laws of intestate succession. Unfortunately, intestate cases tend to take longer and usually have more complications than testate cases. You also have no guarantee that the court will distribute the assets as your loved one would have wished.
Probating A Testate Estate
Fortunately, probate for testate estates – or, estates where the deceased person had a will – is generally simpler. This is why it is so important to create a last will and testament before you pass away. The court will determine the validity of the will; if it declares it valid, it will distribute the assets to the beneficiaries. If a dispute arises, we at , will use strategic mediation and negotiation to resolve it as quickly as possible.
