Considering the fact that executors are the most trusted and influential people in testator's lives, it is well worth considering how empowering dialogue prior to death with those who have both risk and legal responsibilities creates planning opportunities.
When the time comes, many executors feel honoured having been named to such an important role—only to find the experience of administering the estate to be much more difficult and time consuming than they ever expected, all the while experiencing the grief of losing a loved one.
So where to begin?
Certified Executor Advisors (CEAs) are members of a network comprising the 17 professions that executors may turn to in the course of their duties.
As a CEA, I have the skills to provide professional services within my scope as well as general direction and guidance—away from potential pitfalls and toward necessary relevant professional expertise.
