A properly drafted will allow you to determine who will be in charge of the probate of your estate, who will be named guardian for your minor children and who your assets will be left to. In many cases, whereas the age of majority is 18 in Massachusetts, clients choose to establish a trust within the will ti insure that money is held in trust and not given to the children until they reach a certain minimum age.
In many cases to avoid probate, or to otherwise provide for the care, education or comfortable support of a child or loved one, assets may be placed in a trust with specific direction regarding the distribution of those assets.
