Virginia Estate Planning Laws

An individual's personal belongings, real estate holdings, and other possessions make up that person's estate. This estate is inherited by relatives, friends, and other entities when that person dies, usually according to the instructions left in a will. In the absence of a will, probate court decides how the estate is handled. Since death is a certainty, planning your estate early can ensure that it is handled according to your wishes.
