Wills

A will is a traditional legal document that: 1) identifies people (or charitable organizations) who will receive your assets after your death, 2) nominates an execute who will be appointment and supervised by the probate court to manage your estate, pay your debts, expenses, and taxes, and distribute your estate according to the instructions in your will, and 3) nominate guardians of minors, if any.

Most of your assets in your name alone will be subject to your will.
