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.
