definitely include the rings in the financial statement.if you have to give a value try searching online for similar rings although a lot of that would depend on the diamond specs. intestate means he died without a will so his assets are divided according to state law.

If this class has the other two as prerequisites, why did the school let you enroll in it without having them first???

Are you in law school? I did not take family law until my second year after taking wills, etc. Like another poster said, intestate refers to someone who died without a will so property owned by them at death passes by state intestate laws of descent and distribution. You could google south carolina’s intestacy statute if you were curious. 


Are you learning south carolina property rules in the class? Marital v separate? I don’t practice in south Carolina so this is not advice or guidance. In many states, the inherited ring would normally be separate property so you should fully describe it to the extent possible and give a guessimate of value in the asset column. The engagement ring depends on state law.  I would list the full value of the house subject to the mortgage (all 200 as asset, 50 as liability).

@kris325:  skip paralegal, they do all the icky paperwork and the lawyers get all the $$$.

As for the OP … talk to your prof… or get a tutor.  Can you talk to your advisor about maybe getting out of this class and into the one you’re supposed to be in?
