A last will & testament is a legal document that lets you choose who you want to receive your property / possessions when you pass away. Very importantly, it allows you to name a guardian to care for minor children. The main purpose of a will is to ensure that your wishes, not the default laws of the state, will be followed upon the your death.
A testamentary trust is a trust established in a last will & testament, typically for the benefit of minor children. This trust allows you to leave property / inheritance to minor children, with the understanding that adults you choose will manage that property / inheritance until your child reaches a certain age(s).
A durable power of attorney gives someone you choose the power to act in your place. With a valid POA, this person will be legally permitted to take care of important matters for you (i.e. paying your bills, managing your investments, transacting personal business, etc) if you are unable to do so yourself.
A health care power of attorney is a document in which you designate someone to be your representative, or agent, in the event you are unable to make or communicate decisions about all aspects of your health care.
