My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: Indiana
My husband and I are in the process of making out our wills. We do not want his son nor any of our relatives to be Executor/Executrix of the estate. There is too much money grabbing by all. We do not have any friends or relatives to make either. Who or what can we specify as the Executor/Executrix of our Wills?
Also, we do not want to leave anything to his son. I understand that will not be an issue in my case as he is a stepson and not a birth son. However, someone told us that my husband can not purposely leave him out of his Will. Is this correct? Our reason is that some years ago he borrowed $20,000 from us with a Promissory Note but has never paid any of it back and has informed us that he never will. We consider this as any inheritance he will get from us.
