Wills

A will is designed to ensure that your property goes to the people you choose, in the manner and time you specify.

A will is not administered until death, in contrast to a trust, which should be funded and administered immediately upon creation. 

A will can designate a guardian for your minor child or children if you have no surviving spouse; name that administrator of your estate; include a beneficiary who would not otherwise inherit under your state’s laws-for example, a parent, sibling, friend or more distant relatives, and may also provide for bequests to not-for-profit and charitable organizations.

Wills also can establish trusts, or arrangements where one person agrees to hold property for the benefit of another, and name trustees for assets passing to minor children.
