WILLS & PROBATE
THE TIME TO
PROBATE OF AN ESTATE
What does it mean to Probate an Estate? In certain circumstances the State of Illinois requires a descendant’s estate to be probated with the court. This means all assets and debts that did not go through the will are to be accounted for and divided among the living heirs. Our firm prides itself on working diligently to ensure a just accounting is completed and any funds are disbursed to all heirs. We also work with client’s to make sure all Will’s are upheld and that the descendant’s wishes are fulfilled. This includes representing not only estates but also those who need an accounting of a Trust or an Estate where they believe that the descendant’s wishes are not being carried out.
