A will is a legal document allowing you to give instructions which are implemented after your death. Wills are used to direct distribution of assets. If you have children, a will is vital so you can choose your children’s guardian. You can determine who receives your assets (beneficiaries), what assets go to what beneficiaries, exclude assets from certain individuals, choose a guardian if your children are minors, and choose the person who will execute the distribution of your assets.
If you die without a will, California Law determines the beneficiaries of your estate are. It will also determine the allocation to your beneficiaries. For the majority of estates, dying without a will requires assets to go through probate, a very time-consuming and expensive process. While in probate, the Court will determine the allocation of assets.
