Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Will?

A Will is an estate planning tool for distributing assets, designating Executors (point-persons in charge of settling up your estate in court), and nominating Guardians for minor children.

How do I make my Will legally binding?

In order for a Will to be legally binding, you must be over the age of eighteen (18) and of sound mind, and you must sign the Will in front of two (2) "disinterested witnesses," meaning two people who are not related to you or who will not be implicated in your Will.

Does my spouse need a Will?

Yes! You are generally not allowed to have joint Wills, so GoGo Estate's Will Plan automatically gives you and your spouse two separate Wills. Moreover, you and your spouse can have different terms in each of your Wills; they do not need to be identical.

What is the difference between a Trust and a Will?

A Trust is a life-planning tool whereas a Will only comes into effect after your death. While both plans help to designate who will receive your property and assets, Trusts have the added benefit of planning for any unexpected challenges life might throw at you. Trusts also avoid Probate, meaning your Beneficiaries receive their assets quicker than those receiving under a Will. Trusts also have the added benefit of protecting your assets from creditors of your Beneficiaries.

What is Probate?

Probate is the court-based process for validating Wills (i.e., making sure that they were signed properly and are legally binding), distributing assets after your death, and appointing Guardians for your minor children. This process may take a long time, which is why many families, especially those with young children, decide to purchase GoGo Estate's Trust Plan instead. Note, however, that even if you purchase our Trust Plan, if any of your children are under the age of eighteen (18) when you die, your Will must be probated in order to appoint a proper Guardian.

Can my Will avoid Probate?

Probably not. All Wills are subject to Probate. When you die, your Executor will be required to submit your Will to the Probate Division of the county you live in, at which point the Will must be validated. If, however, you designate beneficiaries to your assets, you may be able to avoid Probate because these designations are considered "Nonprobate Transfers." Nonprobate Transfers do avoid Probate, so long as the beneficiaries are still living at your death. Lucky for you, GoGo Estate gives you the tools necessary to learn how to properly designate beneficiaries to your assets.

How long does Probate take?

Depending on the court and complexity of the estate, Probate may require your Beneficiaries to wait over 2 years to inherit from you.
