Even if you have heard of estate planning, and have further heard of an executor of an estate, you may not know exactly what it is.  That’s okay!  Many people are unfamiliar with this vocabulary.  The reason why people may be unfamiliar with this, and other financial planning vocabulary is that they have not yet begun their estate planning process.  But how do I begin the estate planning process?  The first thing that you must do is choose an experienced and professional estate planner.  Ian Filippini is an expert in estate planning and financial advising.  In this article Ian Filippini will briefly discuss what you should think about when choosing an executor for your estate.

First of all, Ian Filippini wants you to know that your estate is everything that you own, all of your assets.  In the simplest terms, Ian Filippini says that’s what it is whether you have a large estate or a small estate.  The executor of your estate, according to Ian Filippini, is the person who will make sure the wishes of your estate plan are carried out.

But who should be your executor?  Ian Filippini says that the most important attributes of someone to choose to be the executor of your estate are trust and honesty.  Many people may choose their spouse, or an adult child to be the executor of their estate, according to Ian Filippini.  If you do not have a spouse or children that you wish to be in charge of your estate after you die, you may choose anyone that you like who is over eighteen years of age.  Ian Filippini says that to be the executor of someone’s estate, you do not need any special education; the courts or lawyers will guide the executor through the process.
