3B:5-2. a. Any part of the decedents estate not effectively disposed of by his will passes by intestate succession to the decedents heirs as prescribed in N.J.S.3B:5-3 through N.J.S.3B:5-14, except as modified by the decedents will. b.A decedent by will may expressly exclude or limit the right of an individual or class to succeed to property of the decedent passing by intestate succession. If that individual or member of that class survives the decedent, the share of the decedents intestate estate to which that individual or class would have succeeded passes as if that individual or each member of that class had disclaimed his intestate share. L.1981, c.405, s.3B:5-2, eff. May 1, 1982; amended 2004, c.132, s.45.
