Hi, My name is Philip. I am an attorney with over 16 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.
If a person dies with a will, then the will dictates who gets what. Part of the will is the "risiduary clause"..that part of the will distributes all property not otherwise specified in the will.
It does not go automatically to the children
