Technically, the original 13 colonies were admitted to the Union simultaneously; however most consider them to have officially become states when they ratified the constitution. To that end I give you…Delaware!
The state of Delaware ratified the constitution on Dec. 7, 1787. (This is why their license plates say “The First State”) It’s a fairly “blue” state politically and mostly rural. I have driven through it several times. Nice state, nice people. The intestate laws? Not so nice.
In Delaware, where there is no will, there is no way. You WILL NOT inherit if you are an unmarried partner. Period. Do not pass “Go”, do not collect $200.
Out of a possible 5 hearts ( ♥♥♥♥♥), The Unmarried Estate Blawg gives Delaware…. Zero. We get no love from The First State, folks…
If you live in Delaware – go see a lawyer and get your will and trust documents taken care of, because in YOUR state: No Will? No Way!
