I don’t want to be the executor of my mothers will. How can I remove myself of this obligation.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

I suffer from a lot of mental issues and cannot take the stress.

ANSWER BY MARGARET CROSS-BELIVEAU:

You do not have to accept the role of executor (aka personal representative). If your mother is alive, ask her to change her will and appoint someone else. If she has already passed, you will need to sign a document, a renunciation, where you decline to serve.
