Do I Really Need a Will in California?

There is no legal requirement for you to have a will in California. If you want to control who receives your assets and who cares for your children, you should have a will.

If you do not have a will when you die, a California court will turn to California's intestacy laws to figure out who will receive your assets. The California intestate laws include a list of relatives who can inherit from you. Your spouse and children are at the top of the list. If you are unmarried with no children, the court will move down the list until it finds a relative to inherit from you. In the unlikely event you do not have at least a distant relative who can inherit from you, the state of California will take your estate.

A will makes it less likely that the state or an estranged relative will inherit from you because you can name the people or charities who will receive your assets.
