Pour Over Will Lawyer in Virginia

Planning for the future requires a keen understanding of the legal tools at your disposal. In Virginia, a Pour Over Will is a key instrument that works in harmony with a living trust to ensure your assets are managed and distributed according to your precise wishes.

At Jennifer Porter Law, we are committed to helping you craft a Pour Over Will that integrates seamlessly with your estate plan. Our approach aims to make the process as clear, simple, and cost-effective as possible, reducing complexities while meeting your unique needs.

Understanding a Pour Over Will in Virginia

A Pour Over Will is a specific type of will designed to work alongside a living trust. It acts as a safety net, ensuring that any assets not funded into your trust during your lifetime are “poured over” into your trust upon your death.

This includes any assets acquired shortly before your death, or assets inadvertently left out of the trust. The designated trustee of your living trust then manages and distributes these assets according to the terms of the trust.

The Value of a Pour Over Will in Virginia

The primary benefit of a Pour Over Will is its ability to capture any assets not included in your living trust, ensuring they’re managed and distributed according to your existing estate plan.

Without a Pour Over Will in Virginia, any assets not included in your living trust would be subject to intestate succession laws, potentially leading to distribution results not in alignment with your wishes. By providing a mechanism for these assets to “pour over” into your trust, a Pour Over Will guarantees your full estate is managed as per your intentions.

    “After my personal injury case languished for 5 years in another law practice, Jennifer Porter took a look into it. What a difference! In just over 9 months my case moved further along than in the previous 5 years. She is extremely knowledgeable, respectful and compassionate. She will CONSTANTLY communicate with you (a rarity among lawyers) and she will fight tooth and nail for your case. If you have a case, don’t doubt for a second calling her office. You too will be impressed by her professionalism. I recommend her 100%.”
