Question re. executor of a trust

Can an out-of-state (Alaska) person be an executor of a will and trust of an estate in California?

Or which CA government office makes judgment of this situation. Son lives in Alaska and mother lives in California. Can son be the executor of her estate? Is there a California residence requirement for the executor?



LLC’s (holding real estate) are part of the Trust.

LLC’s formed in Nevada.

Whether or not CA allows it, the executor should be local. It will get expensive fast otherwise.

Are those LLCs registered in CA? The estate will get hammered in taxes if not.

Thanks BLL,

Those LLCs will be registered in CA so the Attorney says and that they get an $800 fee per year to allow Nevada LLCs.
