A joint will is a single will that covers two people. A joint will determines the distribution of property
in a certain way regardless of who dies first. Usually, all the assets go to the survivor but this
distribution is not a requirement for it to be a joint will. A joint will cannot be changed after one of
the parties dies. Accordingly, a joint will can be problematic if the survivor is young and his or her
circumstances change such that a change in the will would be required.
