What Happens if I Die Without a Will

  1. The Succession Law Reform Act applies.
  2.  It sets out a regime for how the assets of the deceased, net of all debts, are distributed to the next of kin.
  3.  Marital status and the presence or absence of children, parents and siblings are taken into consideration.
  4.  The government only receives your assets if there is no next of kin that can be identified.
