What are the Laws of Intestacy?

These are the laws that govern the estates of people who die without a will. They instruct on who can become the administrator of the estate and who will be the estate beneficiaries.  For the most part the estate administration process is the same whether someone dies with or without a will. The laws of intestacy fill the gaps that exist due to there not be being a will. Those are most frequently the appointment of a personal representative, the estate beneficiaries and waiving the requirement that the personal representative be bonded (if there is no will there will almost always be a bond).
