My wife has been named the executor of her fathers will in AZ and is concerned that once she becomes appointed by the court, she will have personal liability for her fathers debt. He has no surviving spouse, and was sole owner of his property. No beneficiaries are named on his accounts.
A will is a document outlining your final wishes for your estate. In order to ensure your will is valid and your wishes honored, you must follow certain rules.
The executor of a will is the person in charge of finalizing the deceased's estate (paying bills, etc.) and distributing the estate according to the will.
