Your Guide to Success
I know first hand how hard it is to lose somebody and the headaches that follow. I know the importance of having a plan in place.
My father passed away of a sudden heart attack in 2010. Because of this, mom and I had to take the family ranch through probate – for the third time since 1975. This was an extremely long and stressful process and it is the last thing that anyone wants to go through while they are mourning.
I decided then and there a better way must exist. And it does. That better way is an effective estate plan.
I’ve helped 1000’s of families avoid probate and other legal messes.

Three Simple Steps – Leave Nothing to Chance
What Happens Without a Will – Intestate Administration in ArkansasIf you don’t have a Will State law determines what happens to what you had. This process is called “Intestate Administration.” The State has a plan written that says who gets what, when, how, and how much! The Judge controls most of “Intestate Administration” following state law. If you only have a Last Will and Testament your family faces the ordeal of Probate. Probate is much like “Intestate Administration” except you leave a list of who gets what, when, how, and how much. You also use your Last Will to nominate who will raise minor children or care for disabled children. Here are the basics of what happens without a Will in Arkansas Probate Court:
- Your spouse gets 1/3rd of everything other than real estate
- Your spouse gets 1/3rd of the real estate for life (a “life estate”)
- Your children get the other 2/3rds
