Compassionate Step-By-Step Guidance

Understanding the probate process in Illinois can seem daunting, but we’re here to make it simpler for you. Probate is a court procedure in which a deceased person’s property and other assets are distributed to surviving heirs. It also involves paying outstanding debts and filing taxes. We aim to provide clarity and peace of mind during these complex proceedings, ensuring your loved one’s estate is managed with the utmost care and respect.

The process of probate can vary, but typically follows these essential steps:

  1. Filing a petition with the appropriate probate court
  2. Notifying heirs and beneficiaries as required by the court
  3. Appointing an executor or administrator for the estate
  4. Inventorying and appraising the estate’s assets
  5. Paying the estate’s debts and taxes
  6. Distributing the remaining property as directed by the will or state law

Our probate attorneys are committed to making this process as smooth as possible for you. We handle the heavy lifting, allowing you to focus on what’s most important during this time – honoring the memory of your loved one.
