Most individuals aren't aware of the contents of a loved one's will until after their loved one passes.
A key decision that anyone setting up a trust must make is to decide who they're going to appoint to the role of trustee. There are a few attributes that you should look for any potential trustee candidate to have before appointing them to that role.
A will is an estate planning document that individuals draft to give their personal representative directions for how they'd like their assets to handled once they die. Each state has its own standards for what's considered to be a valid will. They also handle wills that have been executed in other states differently. They have distinct procedures for handling cases in which someone dies without a will too.
