What is a Will?

Posted on February 17, 2015

A Will is a document that 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 Will-maker dies and the original will is delivered to the Probate Court. Still, everyone with minor children, at the very least, needs a Will. The Will is the only way to appoint a guardian over a minor child in the event of death of the parent.
