Streamlining Asset Distribution with Pour Over Wills

A Pour Over Will is a crucial element of your estate plan, designed to simplify the distribution of your assets. It acts as a safety net, ensuring that any assets not accounted for in other estate planning documents are seamlessly transferred into your trust upon your passing. This simplifies the process for your beneficiaries and helps ensure that your assets are handled precisely as you wish.
