The answer the questionIf my sister in law died without a will, does that mean that everything stays like my brother wanted it?Is no...that is, your brother's will is not impacted by your sister in law's death with no will.If she died with no will, then the laws of the state in which she lived dictate how her estate is divided.It has no impact on your brother's will.
