Probate is the legal procedure by which your debts are paid and your assets are distributed to heirs or legatees through the court system. If you do not have a will, the assets will be distributed in accordance with Illinois law. This process can be costly and take nine months to two years to complete.
There are many misconceptions involving probate administration. In many cases, an individual assumes that having a will means avoiding probate. Truthfully, the only way you can avoid probate is by properly titling your assets. To do this, you must consult an experienced attorney who can help you plan for your future or the future of your loved ones.
