Pour over wills can be very helpful in protecting your assets. Combined with a trust, it will ensure that that you can plan for your family and your future.
A pour over will is a last will and testament by which the maker of the will has also created a trust and declares that the property of his or her estate is to be distributed by the trustee. The pour over will is a “catch all” to ensure that any property that may have failed to make it into the trust during the grantor's lifetime memorializes the intent of the grantor to have placed it into the trust.
