Being named as a personal representative for a loved one’s estate may feel like an honor; however, it is a role that needs to be taken seriously, as it requires numerous serious tasks and decisions to be made. Estate administration is not always straightforward and smooth sailing. It could easily become complex, which is likely to overwhelm those who are already emotional with the grieving process.
When you create your estate plan, you not only need to consider who will be responsible for administering your estate, but you also need to ensure it is executed correctly, no issues arise and, in some cases, probate is avoided. This is impossible to do after your passing, which is why it is imperative that you take the time to ensure your wishes are accurately memorialized in your estate plan.
