Our son has special needs and has lived with us all of his life. How do I create a special needs trust? How do I create a guardianship?

I am afraid that my children will not be responsible with the money they inherit. How do I make a trust that will take this into account and safeguard my legacy?

My children have some rivalry going on, and yet, I want my eldest to be the executor of my will or trustee of my trust. How can you help me ensure a smooth probate process or avoid probate altogether?
