Our attorneys have decades of experience in handling probate in Illinois. Throughout Schaumburg, Streamwood, Arlington Heights, Rolling Meadows, Hoffman Estates, and the greater Chicagoland area, our attorneys work with clients and estates throughout the probate process.

What is probate?  How does probate court work?  In Illinois, a decedent’s estate must be administered through the probate process if the decedent’s assets exceed $100,000, excluding any jointly owned property, 401(k) assets, life insurance proceeds, and IRA funds or they own real property in their own name.

If I have a will do I have to go through probate?  The answer depends on what assets you own in your name, what kind of assets they are, and how much the assets are worth.  A will by itself does not necessarily mean you can avoid probate.
