Do you have an estate?
It doesn’t matter how limited (or unlimited) your means may be, and it doesn’t matter if you own a mansion or a mobile home. Rich or poor, single or married, when you die, you leave behind an estate. For some, this can mean real estate, cash, an investment portfolio and more. For others, it could be as straightforward as the money in their wallet and the clothes on their back. It could mean a settlement for a pending lawsuit or even a wrongful death action resulting from your death. In any event, what you leave behind when you die is considered to be your “estate”. Probate may be the result.
