Do I Really Need a Will in Pennsylvania?
You are not legally required to have a will in Pennsylvania, but it is a good idea to make one if you want to choose who takes care of your children and receives your property or money after you die.
If you die without a will, the courts will distribute your property according to Pennsylvania's intestate succession laws. Intestate means dying without a will. Intestate succession laws dictate the order in which relatives will inherit from you. If you have a spouse, no children, and your parents are deceased, your spouse will receive everything. If you have children or living parents, then your parents or children could inherit a portion of your estate depending on several factors.
If you do not have a spouse, children, or living parents, then the intestate succession laws provide a list of relatives who are eligible to inherit from you. The list starts with close relatives and moves on to more distant relatives until the court finds a living person able to inherit from you. If you have no relatives to inherit from you, then your assets will pass to the state.
