What is a pour-over will?

A pour-over will is a will that’s made in conjunction with a living revocable trust. The goal of both documents is to avoid probate, but if there’s an asset that has not been retitled into the trust, it’s still in the name of the decedent’s sole name, then you have to probate that asset, but you still want it distributed under the trust, so the pour-over will will say, “For this asset or all my assets that are in my probate estate, just pour them over.” It’s a concept of a pitcher pouring the liquid into the trust.
