My grandfather lives in Brookings. In South Dakota, what happens if he passes away without a will?

Under South Dakota law, if your grandfather passes away without a will he is:

  • Surrendering to the state of South Dakota the important decisions affecting the well-being and future security of his heirs
  • At risk of having his property divided in a way that's not to his liking
  • Foregoing any opportunities to reduce his taxes
