Common questions about last wills

Keep your will in a safe, easily accessible place after it is signed.

Be sure the executor you appointed knows where it is kept.


Wills are legally binding if the following criteria are met:

  • You must be of sound mind
  • You must be acting of your own free will without undue influence or duress from others
  • The will must be signed and witnessed according to the applicable laws of California

A will is sufficient if:

  • The total value of your assets at the date of your death is less than $166,250, excluding any asset which has a beneficiary provision and any asset which is in joint tenancy (or other multiple tenancy).
  • The value of your real property at the date of your death is less than $55,425.

A trust is recommended for estate planning if your assets or real property have a higher value.

If you die without a will you will not be able to choose who receives your assets. Instead, your closest relatives or heirs inherit your wealth according to intestate succession laws.

Intestate succession laws control which surviving family members of the decedent inherit their assets after probate when the person did not leave a will. The statutory laws identify the decedent’s relatives that should inherit the money. Who inherits what depends on which relatives are still alive when the person dies. Generally speaking,

  • When a decedent is married and has children, the spouse receives part of the estate and the children receive the rest.
  • If the decedent is unmarried at the time of death and had children, the laws dived the estate equally among the children.
  • When a decedent is unmarried and childless, the person’s parents inherit the estate.  If the decedent’s parents are not living, the person’s siblings inherit equal portions of the estate.
  • If the person does not have a surviving spouse, children, parents, or siblings, then the person’s grandparents, aunts and uncles, and cousins can inherit.

Keep in mind, there are many other variations of how intestate laws work. You can read more about California’s intestate succession laws here.
