Must a will have an executor?
Is there such a thing as a will without an executor, only beneficiaries? That's what my husband is telling me he has, but I have never seen it. His lawyer has it, and nobody else.
A basic element of a Will is the naming of an Executor, the person in charge of managing the settlement of the estate. No Will would ever be written by a competent lawyer without naming an Executor. It would appear that your husband does not understand his Will or does not want to tell you who he has named as Executor.
