When it comes to your will you really want everything to be in proper order. But in addition to that it is very important that you take the time to choose an executer who will look out for your best interest and that of your family. There are many things that you need to take into consideration, including people feelings. Remember the more famous you are the more dishonest people will try to get your money. This does not mean people who are world wide celebrities. But there are many people who are celebrities right in their own hometowns. This article will highlight some of the things that you should think about before choosing the executer for your will, and the steps you should take to do so. Following is a list of suggestions to assist you in that task:
1. Make a list of those you are considering. Try making a list of those that you are considering as the executer of your will. It should be someone who you trust, which does not necessarily mean that it has to be a relative.
2. Notify the people that you are considering. There is nothing wrong with telling the people that you are considering that you may want them to be the executer of your will in the case of your untimely death. It may help to narrow down your list if they decide they do not want the responsibility.
3. Interview those whom you have chosen. This may seem a little strange to do, but you should actually create a list of questions to ask those that you are considering. If they do not like the idea of you asking questions then just cross them off of your list. You want someone who is very cooperative.
4. Talk to your attorney. If you are not sure what questions you should ask to those whom you are considering then you should take the time to talk to your attorney. They will usually offer you some suggestions.
5. Expect some to be offended and disappointed. Of course if you pick someone who is not a relative and not your attorney you should be prepared for some pretty upset people.
The bottom line is that it is your decision to choose someone who will make sure that your matters are handled properly. What this means is that you want everyone to get what you left for them. This is especially true if you have young children. Sad to say in many families if the children are given to a relative to live the chances of them actually getting the money that was left to them is very slim. Another example is if you are a grandparent and you leave money to your grandchildren. In most cases the parents are the executers of the will and the children will never see a dime. By appointing someone who you know will ensure that everyone gets what you wanted them to get, you will avoid these problems.
