Do I Really Need a Will in Minnesota?

Minnesota law does not require anyone to have a will. Some people may get by without a will, but most should consider creating one. A will allows you to name a guardian for your children and to divide your assets among friends, family, or charities.

If you do not have a will, a court will follow Minnesota's intestate succession laws to determine who will receive the assets you owned at death. These laws give the court a list of relatives who can inherit from you. If you are married, your spouse will receive everything if you do not have descendants or all your descendants are your spouse's only descendants.

If you have descendants with another person or your spouse has descendants with you and another person, your spouse will receive the first $225,000 of your assets plus one-half of the balance. Your descendants will receive the other half of the balance. If you have children but no spouse, your children will inherit from you.

If you do not have descendants or a spouse, a court will move to parents, siblings, and then more distant relatives until it finds a relative who can inherit from you. On rare occasions, a court will not find a relative and the deceased person's estate will pass to the state of Minnesota.
