My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: Kansas
I have a dear friend of 20 + years. He is over 60 and not always in such good health. The man has lots of stuff, antiques, stocks and bonds, cars, land, houses and livestock. If he were to die tomorro (dont want that to happen) what would happen to his stuff with no will? He is pretty much estranged from his daughter that lives closer than his son in PA. He is an only child so no brothers or sisters, mother and father both deceased and a couple of elderly aunts in KY. I have been telling him HE NEEDS A WILL or the state gets to decide. Am I right on this?
