When Is Probate Necessary in Illinois?

In this episode of the Learn About Law podcast & videoblog, Kevin O'Flaherty of O'Flaherty Law discusses when probate is necessary in order to administer the estate of a deceased individual. Probate is typically necessary in Illinois when the decedent owns any real estate or more than $100,000.00 of non-real-estate assets outside of a trust. If probate is necessary, then the executor of the estate must receive Letters of Office from the probate court in order to collect the assets of the estate for the payment of creditors and heirs or legatees. If probate is not necessary, then the executor or trustee can administer the estate immediately with the use of a small estate affidavit.

In this article, we will discuss when it is necessary in Illinois to open a probate matter to administer the estate of a decedent and when doing so can be avoided.
