If you don’t do your job as executor of a will, you could be removed by the probate court judge. Depending upon your actions, it is possible that you could also be sued by heirs or beneficiaries for breach of a fiduciary duty. If you caused financial loss as executor of an estate because you acted in an inappropriate and irresponsible matter– such as if you stole estate assets – you could be sued and could be required to compensate the heirs or beneficiaries for the losses that you caused. You want to ensure that you do your job correctly and are not accused of a breach of a fiduciary duty so you should contact an experienced attorney to get help ensuring that you are able to complete your responsibilities properly when you act as an executor of an estate.
