Estate Planning

The property of Montanans who do not have a will is distributed according to the “law of intestate succession.” Montanans need to understand how this law and how they title their property intertwine to determine who receives assets upon their death.  Make sure the assets you have worked so hard to attain go to the “right” people instead of those on the intestate succession list.
