A will is one of the best ways for you to care for your loved ones after your death. If you have not made a will yet, Pennsylvania law determines where your assets go. Certain family members—such as your spouse—will automatically receive a portion of your estate whether you have a plan or not.
But certain family members, specifically children, might not get anything if you don’t have a will. How your children are related to you can affect whether the law allows them a share of your property.
