Division of assets

Ask a Lawyer

Question

Country: United States of America
State: California

My father is dying of cancer and refuses to draft a will. All his assets will go into intestate territory when he dies. We just discovered that he has another daughter about two years ago. She is the oldest; I am the youngest and have been more involved with my father. Who is first in line for intestate succession? Or are we both equally considered his legal next of kin? I want to make certain his affairs are looked after properly. My sister does not know enough about him to accomplish this task.

Answer

His kids will all normally share equally from the estate including his other daughter.
