Hi. I'm not sure I understand your question. Everyone should have a will regardless of whether you have a trust. The question is whether you need a trust. A lot of that has to do with avoiding probate or some other potential uses depending on the goals and needs. But a typical family would use a trust to better organize everything and control distribution while avoiding going through the court process called probate.
