PAGE 14- THE BAYTOWN SUN, FRIDAY, JANUARY 15, 1954 It's The Law (EDITOR'S NOTE: This Icsnl coltmui is prepared under the supervision of the state bur of Texas and distributed as a public service by the. lawyers of Texas.) • Who .will' inherit, your property? Your husband, wife, mother, father, children, your wife's 'relatives? The best way you can say who will have it is to provide- a will which will protect your rightful beneficiaries and rfispose of your property in acordance with your wishes. When a deceased has no will, or flies "intestate" as the law calls jt. the property of that person is distributed according to a detailed formula fixed by law. In some cases this may be the way you yourself would divide it—but in many cases it is not. • The provisions of the law con- corning the distribution of the property of a person who dies without a will are rather complicated, and all of the possibilities , cannot be covered by a general statement. There are different rules for real estate and for personal property, for community property and for separate property, for homestead property, and for all of'the many possible combinations _of surviving relatives. Each situation must be carefully studied to determine the correct distribution of tbn property. . . . For example, here is a genera! idea of how the community property which you and your spouse have accumulated will be divided if you So not make a will prior to your death. • ' If your .husband or wife survives and there are no children, the surviving spouse receives all of the property... ' . , '. . -If, in addition, there are surviving children or descendants of deceased children,.they 'would divide one-half of the property, while the-surviving..spouse would receive the.other one-half. Of course, grandchildren do not share in . the: estate unless . their parent who would inherit is deceased. And when descendants of • previously deceased children do inherit, they receive only the por- tion'that the child would have received, regardless of .the number of such descendants. An odd note, perhaps, is that the surviving spouse already owns one- half of the community estate prior to your death,:and the laws adds nothing to this share where there are children surviving. When there are only children and their descendants surviving, they divide the entire community estate 'between them.
