Experienced Probate Attorneys Glenview, IL Residents Trust

When a person dies, one of the bigger questions looming over the event is “Who gets that person’s money and possessions?”

Probate law was created to answer that question. Probate law, administered by a probate judge, is the body of law that determines who will inherit the estate of the decedent. If no legal documents are in place, the ownership will be determined by the probate judge according to the applicable probate laws.

Needless to say, that may not turn out the way you want it to. If you’re the decedent, your estate may not pass to the people you want to get it. If you’re the one hoping to inherit an estate, the law may indicate that it goes to someone else.

Going through probate can be an expensive litigation process that drains the estate’s wealth and places a burden on everyone involved. The best way to avoid this process is to make sure that you’ve prepared your estate with the right legal documents. For assistance in creating these legal documents, contact The Heartland Law Firm.

“The people at The Heartland Law Firm guided us through a complicated probate court legal process following the death of our mother. They also coordinated the sale of her home with the buyer and the title-closing company. We cannot imagine going through all of this without expert legal advice. The fees they charged were very fair and affordable.

I would recommend them to anyone in a similar situation.”
