Solving the problem of passwords for executors of estates

Illinois residents use passwords to protect their finances and privacy. These passwords can keep hackers out. Unfortunately, the passwords that protect a person can create problems if the individual passes away or becomes incapacitated. It is good for individuals to think about how their loved ones will be able to access their data if this was to happen.

Choosing an executor

Many people living in Illinois understand the importance of estate planning. They take the time to write a will and execute other documents that govern end-of-life issues, such as advanced directives, powers of attorney and living wills. However, many people make mistakes when choosing an estate executor.

Who could be interested in a probate proceeding

During a probate hearing in Illinois, a will may be challenged. The person or entity challenging the will needs to know who the interested parties to that document may be. Generally speaking, anyone actually listed in the will is going to be an interested party. Typically, a spouse, parent or other family member will be included in the document. However, there could be other interested parties that aren't so obvious.
