Estate Planning Frequently Asked Questions

What happens to an estate if the deceased has no descendants?

When there are no descendants, an estate goes to the parents. If there are no living parents, then the estate will go to your parent’s closest descendants (siblings first, and then nieces and nephews, etc.) If there are no siblings, nieces, or nephews, then the estate goes to your grandparents or relatives. If these are not living, then the estate goes to the deceased spouse’s descendants. If none of these are living or exist, then the estate will go to the state of Iowa.

Does having a will cause an increase in probate expenses?

No, it doesn’t. It could even save probate expense as less court involvement is needed. If you have good estate planning through a will, this can save your estate and beneficiaries quite a large number of administration costs and taxes. See: http://www.iowabar.org/?page=wills
