What Happens When Minors Inherit Property?

In this episode of Learn About Law, we explain what happens when minors inherit property and explore the different possible scenarios, including if the decedent dies with a will, trust, or neither. #EstatePlanning #IllinoisLaw

When a minor inherits property in Illinois, how that property will be dealt with depends on whether the decedent (the person from whom the property is inherited) dies with a will, with a trust, or without either (intestate).  In this article, we will explain the results of the different potential scenarios.

1.  Decedent dies intestate (without a will or trust)

In the absence of a will or trust, the decedent’s estate will go through probate.  The probate court will appoint a guardian of the minor child’s estate.  This person will be responsible for managing the inherited assets of the minor until the minor reaches age 18, at which point the remaining assets will be paid out to the child.  The guardian of the estate will have the duty to preserve as much of the inheritance as possible for distribution to the child when the child reaches the age of majority.  He or she will be required to report periodically to the probate court until the assets are finally distributed and seek court approval for certain types of transfers.  The guardian of the estate may be a different individual than the guardian of the person (the individual with custody over the guardian).  However, in the absence of a will or trust naming a specific person as the guardian of the estate, the guardian of the person will often be named the guardian of the estate.  This is undesirable for divorcees who do not necessarily want their ex-spouse, who will likely be the custodial parent and guardian of the person,  to have control of their property.
