The loss of a loved one is devastating and can be compounded with the burden of legal work. At The Law Offices of David Blocher, you will work one on one with a probate lawyer you can depend on to help smooth the transition.

There are often many different questions when a member your family passes away. In the event that they did not leave behind a trust or Will, it can be challenging to know how best to handle the situation. You can depend on your estate administration attorney from our law offices to walk you through the process and help you make the best decisions. We have more than 20 years of experience assisting clients throughout Chicago, IL.

The first step is to consider whether or not there is a Will and if probate will be needed. In Illinois, probate law dictates that a person’s Will must be filed in the county of residence of the deceased person within 30 days of their passing. Probate may not be needed depending on the situation, however in general probate is necessary if no Will is available and the state will then preside over the distribution.
