Q: What if my sibling left a Will and died will my assets follow the will or go to her daughter who my sibling left nothing
A: In Kansas, a Will, by itself, won't transfer any assets until it has been probated. This is a court process usually supervised by a Judge. I would highly recommend speaking with a lawyer about this situation. Your lawyer can help review the Will and present it to the probate court. There may be other ways by which assets transfer, and if there are, the Will may or may not be relevant to those assets. We offer consultations to help figure out what strategies may be needed and who the lawful heirs / beneficiaries of all the assets will be.
