Hi Yes you can appoint an alternative executor. please click ACCEPTthanks
I am afraid I have to disagree with OL (in fairess, he doesn't often make mistakes). However, as executor you cannot appoint someone else, but you can appoint an attorney to act on your behalf, or you can 'renounce' probate which means that beneficiaries or co-executors have the right to act.
I suggest the Power of Attorney route is best.
I hope this helps, please click "accept".
