Chadwick Boseman Died Without a Will, But His Wife Will Still Be Protected

Chadwick Boseman Died Without a Will, But His Wife Will Still Be Protected

It has been almost two months since the tragic death of Chadwick Boseman and now we have learned that he didn’t have a will when he passed away.

Taylor Simone Ledward has filed a petition to be made the administrator of Chadwick‘s estate and the documents she filed noted that he died “intestate,” which means he didn’t have a will.

Chadwick‘s estate is shown to have an estimated value of $938,500, according to People. It has been noted that the majority of his assets are likely being held in separate private trusts.

TMZ has reported that Ledward is protected, despite there being no will, as she was Chadwick‘s wife at the time of his death. When a person dies without a will and without children, the surviving spouse inherits all of the assets.

The documents note that Chadwick is also survived by his two parents.
