Everyone Needs a Will
No matter what your age, stage of life, or whether you have considerable or moderate assets, everyone needs a Will. This important estate planning document allows you to legally designate who will manage your estate when you pass away, and how your assets will be distributed to your beneficiaries. Even if you decide to have a Trust, you will need a Pour-over Will in your Estate Plan.

Do I Need a Will?
If you have assets, you should have a Will to specify who should receive your funds and your goods when you pass away. More importantly, a Will lets you say who should be the guardian of your minor children. If you don’t choose a guardian, the court will decide who will care for your kids.
In some cases, you may decide to have a Revocable Living Trust as your primary estate planning document. If you do, you will still need a Pour-over Will to protect all of your assets and your wishes.
Protect your children and your loved ones with a legally binding Will.
Your Will is the most important estate planning document for expressing your wishes and protecting your loved ones if something happens to you.

Estate planning can be overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Find answers to common questions about creating your Will and planning for your future here.
A Will, or Last Will and Testament, designates who you want to inherit your assets and more importantly, if you are a parent of minor children, who you want to nominate to be guardian of your children.
If you have assets, you should have a Will that directs who should receive your funds and goods, and even your pets, when you pass away. Even if you have limited assets, without a Will, the laws of your state determine who gets those assets, not you. Most of us want to control and choose who gets our belongings.
Your Gentreo online Will includes Parental Guardianship, Beneficiaries, Digital Assets, Pets, and more.
Without a Will, the court appoints someone to be guardian for your minor children and to administer your estate. Your assets are distributed according to your states’ rules. With an online Will, you decide.
Both a Will and a Revocable Living Trust, broadly speaking, are legal documents that contain instructions as to how you want your assets managed. The big difference between them is that a Will only goes into effect when you die and a Revocable Living Trust goes into effect during your lifetime.
Because rarely do you transfer everything you own into the Trust while you’re living. So, you need a special type of Will, known as a Pour-over Will, to “pour” all of the assets that you own into your Revocable Living Trust upon your death. Therefore, an all-encompassing, Trust-based Estate Plan would also include a “Pour over” Will.
A Will reflects an individual’s wishes. Both you and your spouse need your own online Will and usually the Wills are similar.
You can refer to them however you wish: partner, friend; girlfriend/boyfriend. The way you refer to them has no legal significance. You protect them by providing for them in your online Will and empowering them to act for you in other estate planning documents like a Heath Care Proxy and Power of Attorney.
If you have minor children, it is important that your online Will states who you want to serve as your children’s guardian. If you do not nominate a guardian, the court will appoint someone without any input from you.
