Do You Have the Right Executor for Your Estate?

One of the first most important decisions to make when considering your will is to name an Executor.  The Executor makes sure that your wishes, as stated in your will/estate, are carried out. This is a person with whom you place ultimate trust.

Often, a family member is designated as Executor, especially an adult child. This is an obvious choice, but may not be the best choice.  Some things you should consider:

  • Family Harmony - Problems can arise when a parent picks one child over another. 
  • Sometimes a child can find it hard to be completely objective.
  • Your children can often disagree over numerous items surrounding your estate (the selling of assets, division of personal property, or how long it should take to settle the estate.)
  • Children also find it often difficult to communicate with one another.

If you are concerned about any of the above, you should consider naming a sibling or close friend as Executor.

At Campbell & Pruchnik, wills and estates are our specialty.  We can help guide and advise you based on your unique situation. Call us today for a free consultation at (732) 363-7869.
