What is a Intestate estate, an intestate estate is whenever someone dies without a will. In the state of Florida if you die without a will the Florida statutes say who receives your, who the beneficiaries are of your estate, and so that is a intestate estate. To give you a little course or a preview of that is if you have a spouse the spouse may be entitled to one half or the entire amount if you don’t have any children by any other person or don’t have any spouse outside of marriage. If you do have children by a different marriage from this spouse well then the spouse gets half and all the children get the other half. If you don’t have any children then it gets a little more complicated.
