State laws vary as to who can qualify as executor (also known as a personal representative). Beneficiaries and family members can usually serve as executor. Generally, in most states your executor must be a resident of the state you resided in at the date of your death. State laws can sometimes be more permissive or restrictive. If you want to name a non-resident executor or have other questions about who is qualified to serve, you may want to seek the advice and guidance of an attorney licensed to practice in your state.
