Let’s talk about whether a trust overrides a will. Before I answer that question, you got to understand what trust and a will is. A trust is basically a probate avoidance device where you avoid the courts and do this in a much faster and cheaper way once you pass away for your heirs. A will allows you to go to court and literally is an allowance because it’s a ticket to court. You must go to court if you only have a will. Or if you have a trust and everything is not in the trust then you’ll still.
