A Will is a document a person signs to provide for the orderly disposition of assets after death. Wills do not avoid probate. Wills have no legal authority until the willmaker dies and the original Will is delivered to the Probate Court.
Still, everyone with minor children needs a Will. It is the only way to appoint the new “parent” of an orphaned child. A “backup” Will is typically included with a Living Trust.
