Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.

.

If someone dies intestate (no will) in LA, but has a spouse and children, then they will all share in the estate to different degrees.

.

The spouse gets the right to use the deceased's share of any community property for life, called "usufruct".

.

The children inherit the deceased's share of the community property subject to the spouse's right to use it for life. The children also inherit all the separate property.

.

thanks
