Serving as the Executor of a loved one's estate is a great honor, but it's also a serious obligation and undertaking. Sometimes, mistakes can be made that will turn the job into a real nightmare.
Here's an interesting article that I came across in the Wall Street Journal that does a nice job of highlighting some of the big mistakes that every Executor should strive to avoid.
Take a look and, hopefully, you'll learn how to prevent these same kind of mistakes from happening to you. And remember this, if you've been named as the Executor of either a family member or a friend's estate, don't try to take the job on alone. Make sure that you seek out the advise and assistance of an experienced estate administration attorney at the beginning of the process rather than waiting until problems have already arisen.
