Intestate Succession

Intestate Succession in Coos County If a person dies without a will or trust, and he or she has property which must pass through probate, the laws of “intestate succession” as set forth in the statutes of the State of Oregon govern how the deceased person’s property will be distributed. When considering whether to have a will, it is very important to discuss with your lawyer what will happen if you die without a properly executed will (or trust) setting forth your wishes as to how your property should be distributed among your beneficiaries.  If you die without a will (or trust), the Oregon statutes, not you, will decide how your probate property is to be distributed.
