Will & Trust
A last will and testament is a legal document that you create to help express how you want to distribute your assets and what you plan to do with your estate and any dependents after you die. Living wills are usually handled in probate court, where the court will help supervise that your last will is carried out as you intended. Creating a last will usually only takes a few hours, depending on the complexity of your estate. If you die without a will, the state where you live will become your executor of the will and estate, and will decide who to pay first and who can claim a stake in your will.
