The Job of The Executor
The person who is named executor of an estate is the one who is responsible for making sure the wishes of the deceased, as expressed in the will are honored. If there is no will, the executor then works with probate court to distribute the assets according to the intestate succession laws of the state, or the state laws that specify how the money is to be distributed. The executor of an estate also notifies everyone involved of the death, like the deceased’s banks, credit unions, and Social Security. When assets are left to beneficiaries, the executor contacts the beneficiaries to notify them. The matter of taxes must also be handled. A skilled attorney from the Voeller Law Firm of San Antonio, Texas can help the executor to be certain that all of his or her duties are covered in the administration of the estate.
