My husband died without a will. We have two children. Will I inherit everything?

For the most part you are going to inherit everything. That is under the assumption that these two children are your two children together. Intestacy laws which govern this situation, because he is dying without a will, he’s dying intestate, means that you’re going to inherit the estate. There is one exception to that situation and that is the home. If it’s only in his name, you have some options. I suggest that you talk to an estate planning attorney that knows what happens when you die, you’re not on title with your husband for that home, and you have children that you have to address as well.
