What happens to your children if you pass away without a will?

Under South Dakota law, if you pass away without a will you are:

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