What Is a Will?

A Will is a legal document which becomes effective only at your death.

A Will is used to name individuals (or charitable organizations) to receive your assets upon your death (either by outright gift or in trust).
In your Will, you nominate an executor, appointed and supervised by the probate court, to manage your estate, pay debts and expenses, pay taxes, and distribute your estate in an accountable manner and in accordance with your will.

Your Will also nominates the guardians of the person and estate of your minor children, to care and provide for your minor children.

In summary, in California, if you die without a Will or Living Trust, you are considered to have died “intestate” and your estate may be subject to Probate Administration. Your estate is distributed to your heirs in accordance with California law; which might not be in accordance with your wishes.
