Financial Powers of Attorney in WV

Financial powers of attorney can be inexpensive, flexible tools for authorizing someone else to manage your money and property, but they can also be abused by financial exploiters. In 2012 the Uniform Power of Attorney Act became effective in WV. This brochure describes how powers of attorney work under the new law. It is a .pdf file that prints on one sheet of legal size paper, front and back.

Dying Without A Will in WV

Who inherits from you if you die without a will?  If you die intestate, West Virginia statutory law ensures that your estate passes to your spouse and/or other relatives. The law determines who the recipients of your property are, and the amount the recipients receive depends on whether you are survived by a spouse, and if you have a spouse, the relation of any children you may have to your spouse.
