Laws of intestacy in New Jersey

Intestate succession is a complicated area of estate administration law. It becomes applicable to the estate of a deceased individual when that person passes away without having first executed a valid will. As our readers in New Jersey may know, a will is a legal document that a person may use to identify beneficiaries who will receive items of the decedent's property once they have passed on.

What is included in an end-of-life estate?

When New Jersey residents pass away, the items that they owned must be properly distributed to their loved ones, creditors and other relevant parties. The things and assets that they leave behind constitute their estate and depending upon the type of estate plan that they leave the distribution of those things and assets can look very different from decedent to decedent.
