A will drawn up and otherwise validly executed and witnessed is subject to the spouse’s contesting the will (or “busting” the trust) and asserting his or her right to the spousal elective share regardless of the language of the document that gives away property, whether a will or a trust. In some states, attorneys deem it wise to include a laundry list of other blood relatives you may wish to exclude from taking under your will, while in other states this is unnecessary. If a will is valid in the state in which it is executed, most states will honor the will.
Your personal representative is your representative in bringing the will through probate. The court will look to people closely related to you to administer the estate. You might not have wanted the people chosen by the court. The administrator, as would your personal representative, settles the estate when no will exists or if the person named as personal representative fails for some reason to qualify or dies before execution of the will. If you are in the process of drafting your will, it is probably not a good idea to choose a personal representative who is terminally ill or who chronically drinks and drives.
However, if the will is found invalid, it is as if the decedent died intestate (with no will at all). After taxes and creditors are paid, the remainder of the estate (if any) is distributed among the heirs in accordance with state law. If the will is found valid, the personal representative then moves to finalize the estate by filing papers with the probate court. These papers include copies of notices to concerned parties, tax returns, and paid bills. Proof of distribution of the remaining assets, for example, signed receipts from beneficiaries, must also be provided.
