Millionaire Football Star Died Without a Will

Mississippi native and football legend Steve McNair died without a will, leaving the handling of his estate to the intestacy laws of Tennessee, the Tennesseeian reports.  His widow's petition to open the estate only identifies herself and their two sons, but omits his two other sons from a previous marriage.  Under Tennessee law, his surviving spouse will receive 1/3 of the estate, whether he has 2, 4, or more children. This result is different than if his estate had been probated in Mississippi, where his widow would only recieve an equal share with his children, which presumably is why the estate was opened in Tennessee.  It is a certainty that representatives on behalf of his other two children will intervene in his estate to ensure they recieve their share of the estate.  What is uncertain is whether other putative heirs will also assert claims.  Had McNair executed even a simple will, these issues would have been eliminated, and handled in a manner of his choosing rather than the courts.
