There Is More To A Will Than You Might Suspect
We Will Help You Sort Through The Important Details
Few people would want someone else to decide who should receive their property when they die. Yet this is exactly what can happen if you should die without a will.
At the Blacha Law Office, we draft wills and other estate planning documents for clients in Naperville, Joliet and the surrounding areas. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your estate planning needs.
If you die without a will or trust in Illinois, your assets will be distributed according to our state’s law of intestate succession. As a result, your assets may not go to the people you would have wanted to have them.
By drafting a will, you can determine who should receive your assets and when they should receive them. Your will can also name a person whom you trust to serve as the administrator or executor of your estate. If you have minor children, your will can name the person you and your spouse would want to serve as their guardian if you and your spouse should both die before your children reach the age of 18.
No two families have the same assets or the same members. When creating a will, it is important to consult with a lawyer who will take the time to get to you. A cookie-cutter estate plan that does not consider your unique situation can lead to unintended consequences. In some cases, your needs may be better served by a trust than a will.
The firm has provided personal, attentive service to help families protect their assets and their beneficiaries for nearly 20 years. We also guide administrators of wills through the probate process.
