Without an estate plan, state law determines where your assets go when you die.  Generally, it’s to your spouse and children.  If you are someone without a spouse or kids, your estate will go to other relatives — parents, siblings, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins.  It will not go to your best friend, significant other, beloved pets, or charitable causes you support.  For that, you need a plan.
