Estate planning is an important aspect of providing protection and support for yourself and for your family in the event that something happens to you.
If you die without making a valid Will, this is called dying 'intestate'. State law will then determine how your estate is distributed. Unfortunately, this may not always be as you had intended.
An executor is responsible for the administration of an estate and for carrying out the wishes set in the Will.
Sometimes in life, an adult is unable to make important decisions because of disability. When these decisions involve everyday financial and legal affairs, the Public Trustee can help.
