The Estate Settlement Process
Passing your wealth on to your heirs has become increasingly complex, so it’s important to select an executor (or personal representative) that has time, resources, and skill needed to handle the process objectively and efficiently.
Even the best-planned estates require numerous filings on the federal, state, and local levels. Your appointed executor must understand and comply with these rules and will need to also manage the emotional complexity of family relationships and interests. And, if you’re a business owner, there are even more considerations when your business is included in your estate.
