HOW ARE A WILL AND A TRUST DIFFERENT?
A Will still needs to go through the Probate process, which means the Will must be admitted to Court and approved by a Probate Judge before your assets can be transferred. A Trust avoids Probate altogether, so it is quickly administered by your chosen successor Trustee. Because a Trust avoids Probate, you can save your heirs a lot of money in taxes, capital gains, court fees, etc., whereas a Will does not.
A Will is not kept private after your death. The Will must be filed in Court and becomes a matter of public record. Conversely, a Trust always remains private and is never filed or made part of public domain.
