There are many ways a person can pass wealth on to descendants. One of these is the trust, which comes in a wide variety of forms to suit a person's needs.

Family members continue parents foundation

There are times when having a will truly help parents and heirs alike. One such instance occurred in California after a husband and wife passed, leaving their estate to their son.

In cases such as this where married couples want to provide for an entity that they support, having a will is essential.
