A will becomes a conditional will when it contains language that makes it effective only if a certain occurrence (condition) takes place. An example would be if you were going to go on a dangerous trip and you wanted to make sure that if something happened to you on that trip your assets were distributed in a certain way. Then you could create a conditional will that stated, “If I do not return from this trip then I want my assets distributed ___________ .”
