- Choosing a power of attorney agent is very similar to determining who will be your executor. Choose someone who takes care of business, handle bills and manage your accounts.
- When choosing an executor, don’t necessarily pick the eldest son or the youngest son, but choose someone who has the time and ability to do the job.
- Someone who is very busy is probably the best person, based on the old age wisdom that says, “If you need something done, give it to a busy person.”
- Distance is not an issue. If a person is good at what they do, they’ll figure it out.
