How to know if a wall is load-bearing?

4 years ago

I want to remove a wall on the second story of a two-story house. There is nothing above the wall, just empty attic space. Below it is an open kitchen, about 11x14, and stairwell to the basement. The wall runs with the roof line of the house, and separates two 10x10 bedrooms, opening the span to 20 feet (x 10 feet). Can I remove it without worrying about installing a beam for support?
