What happens if you die without a will?

If you pass away without a last will, this is known as dying "intestate". When this happens, the state decides what happens to your property and your dependent children. The laws governing intestacy vary greatly from state to state.

What is probate?

Probate is the legal process used by the court to decide how an estate will be divided. In general, a court will follow the directions in a last will, unless the will is successfully contested. The length of time and the cost to probate an estate depend on the value of the estate and where it is located. In certain situations, it may be prudent to set up a living trust to avoid the probate process.

What is a living trust?

A living trust is an arrangement made (while you are still alive) to transfer your property into a trust for the benefit of yourself and others. Since you are the trust's first trustee, you maintain ownership and control, but upon your death, the person you choose as successor trustee steps in to transfer the property according to your wishes, without needing to go through probate court.

If I already have a last will, why do I need a living will?

Though they sound similar, a last will and a living will are two very different things that serve different needs. A last will details what you want to happen to your property after your death. A living will, sometimes called an advance directive, dictates the medical care you wish to receive under certain circumstances if you become incapacitated or otherwise unable to communicate your wishes.

What's the best for my state, a last will or living trust?

The laws regarding what happens to your property after your death can be very complex and vary widely from state to state. In Texas, the probate process is relatively simple, and a last will is be sufficient for many people's needs. But in California or Florida, the probate process can be expensive and time consuming, which makes the living trust an appealing option, depending upon the size of your estate.
