Naming Your Executor
Preparing your Will is a huge step in the right direction to begin your estate planning process. Naming an executor, the person you have designated to carry out the terms of your Will, is an important one. The executor's duties include collecting the decedent's probate assets, paying valid debts, managing estate funds, and ultimately distributing them to the beneficiaries in accordance with the terms of the Will. A friend or loved one so often has no idea where to begin.
