The duties of an executor can be difficult and thankless

New Jersey residents are often honored when they are asked by a close friend or relative to act as the executor of their wills after they pass away. The duties of an executor are important, but they can also be difficult and thankless for the unprepared. The executor is tasked with ensuring that the wishes of a testator are carried out while abiding by the strict rules laid down by applicable law, and understanding the major challenges involved can make this process far less onerous.

Wills, trusts and other ways to pass assets

People in New Jersey may want to avoid probate by passing their assets in ways other than a will. Wills still do have some advantages, however. There are a number of ways that a person can pass their assets to their intended beneficiaries, both within the structure of a will as well as through several other vehicles.
