Definition from Nolo’s Plain-English Law Dictionary
A will that "pours over" property into a trust when the will maker dies. A pour-over will is intended to guarantee that any assets which somehow were not included in the trust become assets of the trust upon the party's death. Property left through the will must go through probate before it goes into the trust.
