Responsibilities of an executor of a will?
I have no relationship with my dad yet he wants me to be the executor of his will (he is 75 and has ParkinsonÂs). Dad wants me to meet with him to review his will and whatever else. I won't meet with him but I would be willing to take on the responsibility of his will after his death. He insists that we have to discuss face to face first. If this is the case then I won't do it. Dad always comes up with excuses for why I need to go see him and I'm afraid this is just one of those excuses. I don't want or need anything from him now or in the future and he knows this but I do want to make sure his will is carried out properly, mostly because of my mentally ill brother. I'm pretty sure he will leave the majority of his estate to my brother but then again he could leave the whole thing to the NRA!
So, is there any pre-death responsibilities of an executor?
Oh, before you say it, no I will not give the poor old guy a break. He was abusive and evil and I won't be subjected to even looking at him.
