When someone passes away, the heirs of their estate may dispute with each other or find themselves dealing with the state’s probate laws. With proper estate planning, property can be distributed according to the wishes of the decedent. However, without a will or trust, the process of estate administration can be complicated and lead to disputes. A Chicago Wills & Trusts Attorney can help families deal with this process and ensure that their loved ones are taken care of after death.
