What is an executor (personal representative) and what does the executor do?
In Florida, the name of the executor was changed to personal representative many, many, many, many years ago. Probably decades in fact. The personal representative of the will is the person who is appointed to see to it that that will gets admitted to probate in court. They go to a lawyer as the personal representative, to get legal advice in order to do their job as a fiduciary. That is someone who’s handling someone else’s money properly.
