Executor of a Will
The most important part of a will is the naming of an executor. Whoever you designate as executor will have the responsibility of settling any tax debts, other debts, and distributing your property. This person essentially makes sure your wishes are upheld. Choosing an executor can be difficult and very personal. Choosing a guardian for minor children can be difficult also and is certainly a personal choice. If you leave this issue unsettled, it can cause family battles and truly impact the fate and security of your children. A will may make financial provisions for any children, such as money to meet their needs in the future and insurance benefits. A will may also address the fate of a family business and many other assets that can lead to contention between loved ones if not handled properly.
