A will is a written declaration, which directs the distribution of your property after your death. An executor named in your Will manages the property in your estate. The executor pays any bills of the estate and distributes the property to beneficiaries designated in your will. Using a Will virtually guarantees your property will pass through probate at your death.

If you have minor children, an important function of a will is to name a guardian to care for your children upon your death. You should inform the person you intend to name as guardian of your intention and obtain their acceptance of this important responsibility.
