Honestly, that is not an easy question to answer. In part it depends upon the size of the estate. Also it depends upon the terms of the Will. Best to meet with an attorney to address the specifics.

Yes, until it is changed, but if some of the assets are changed from being you separate property into community property, the Will only regulates what has remained as separate property and your portion of the community property.
