Passare.com™ and Robert L. Shepard explain how to select and assign an executor.
Now that you’ve written a will, who’s going to carry out your specific instructions for asset management?
The executor is the administrator of your will and in charge of fulfilling your end-of-life wishes. Your executor prepares, organizes and manages your after death responsibilities and is the one to honor your end-of-life directives.
