Customer Question

My brother died intestate. Am I right in thinking that his estate (which is little) pays for any bills and any monies left over go to his children. He was divorced.

Welcome to Just Answer

I am a Solicitor and will assist you today.

I am very sorry to hear about your loss.

Please may I ask:

- what is the value of the entire estate?

- what are the total liabilities?

- was your brother married?

kind Regards

Thank you for your question

My name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to help you.

You are absolutely correct.

His estate is used to pay the funeral bill and any other debts and then the balance is shared equally between his children

Please ask if you need further details
