What is a Will?
A will is a written document that lists the people or organizations who
will receive the assets of your estate upon your death.
A will also allows you to name the guardian for your minor children and
the custodian for assets that may pass to your minor children.
- However, a will is not a way to avoid probate. If this is your goal, you
should consider a living trust with a “back-up will.”
- If you die without a will, California law will determine who receives your
estate. Therefore, to ensure that your estate is distributed according to
your wishes, a will is an important estate-planning device.
