Communications With Executors

Communications with Executors and Beneficiaries

The aftermath of losing a loved one is often a difficult time. The legal complexities of the probate process can be frustrating. Misunderstandings can arise between the executor—the person entrusted with carrying out the wishes of the deceased—and the beneficiaries named in the will. Communication with executors may be able to help alleviate these misunderstandings.
