Likewise, if you have a minor child or act as a guardian of an adult with special needs, consider who you would want to step in your shoes to fulfill this role in your absence.Executor * RequiredAn ideal executor is reliable, trustworthy, diligent, and be able to keep the peace with people while still standing firm. An executor may charge for his/her/its duties. Begin brainstorming (family, friends, bank / trust departments, etc.) Try to think of 2-3 options if possible.TrusteeClients often underestimate the work of a Trustee. An ideal Trustee will have the same characteristics as an ideal Executor, but also be somewhat financially savvy and know when and how to ask for professional assistance if needed. A Trustee may charge for his/her/its services. Begin brainstorming of potential Trustees (banker, corporate trust departments, family members, friends, etc.). Try to think of 2-3 options if possible.GuardianIf both you and your spouse (if applicable) were gone, who would you want to care for your minor children (or children with special needs)?
