NC – Intestate with no surviving spouse

In the state of North Carolina if a person dies and does not have a will, they are considered intestate.  The North Carolina General Statues Chapter 29 states how a person’s estate will be distributed.

If the intestate does not have a surviving spouse there ire statutes on how others will share in the estate. One explains the priority on those other than a surviving spouse.  The other explains how the estate will be distributed among classes.

Below is a slideshow presentation I have created to help explain part of the North Carolina General Statutes that explain how the estate is distributed when there is a surviving spouse.

This is not legal advice and other states have different statutes governing intestate distribution.  You should always consult a local lawyer for local advice on your estate.
