If someone has appointed you as a guardian or power of attorney should he or she become incapacitated or need that level of assistance in the future, you might find that it is more difficult than you imagined to transition into such a relationship. Even if someone has previously admitted he or she needs help, he or she might not feel that way on every given day, and it's natural for adults to fight for their independence in such situations. If you are a caregiver for someone who seems not to want help, there are some things you can do to ease the situation.
Being an executor for someone else's estate is a big responsibility, but it is also an honor. When someone names you as an executor, it means that the individual trusts you with his or her very last acts on this earth. The person believe you will honestly and lawfully abide by both the letter and spirit of one's wishes when handling estate matters, which includes paying debts and disbursing assets to heirs.
The status of your estate -- and your relationship with various heirs and beneficiaries -- changes over time. After creating a will, you might get married or divorced. You might have additional children or grandchildren. The ways in which your relationships can change are almost unlimited, as are the reasons you might want to edit a will. To make valid changes to your will, however, you simply can't edit the document and call it a day.
