PSED Law Discuss The Importance of Picking out a Personal Representative for Your Estate Plan

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Michimich -- Have you decided to have your Will and Estate Plan drafted? This process involves identifying what assets you have, where they should go, and how they should be given to the recipient, but the most important step is selecting someone to oversee the entire process once you're gone.

The Personal Representative plays a critical role in the management and the distribution of your assets and most likely will be your spouse or a close relative, but it can also be a friend or someone who you have had a business relationship with and who is well suited for the role.

It's important that you get approval from the person you choose as your Personal Representative before naming them as it is vital that the individual understands their responsibility and can commit to the position. It's also recommended that you consider and name a successor, or even more than one successor, in case your primary choice is unable to meet the demands or be available when it's time to act.
