When Is Probate Necessary in Cook County?

Tinley Park probate lawyer Kevin O'Flaherty describes when probate is necessary in Cook County, Illinois.

tinley park probate lawyer

Our Tinley Park probate attorneys explains what probate is and when it is necessary in Illinois.  Probate is a court case in which the court oversees the administration of a deceased person's estate, and the distribution of his or her assets to heirs and creditors. Probate is generally required in Illinois if the deceased individual (known as the "decedent") owned real estate outside of a trust or more than $100,000.00 of non-real estate assets outside of a trust or payable on death accounts.  If probate is not necessary, the estate may be administered by the executor or trustee preparing a Small Estate Affidavit.

What is the Difference between Independent Administration and Supervised Administration of a Probate Estate?

Our Tinley Park probate attorneys explain the differences between supervised administration and independent administration of a probate estate.  In independent administration, the executor or adminstrator of the estate can make most decisions without court approval.  If an interested party requests supervised administration of the estate, the executor or administrator will be required to get court approval for most major decisions and distributions and file additional reports with the court.  This protects the interests of adverse parties and may protect the executor or administrator from liability. ​

In this article, our Tinley Park estate attorneys explain what happens when minors inherit property in Illiknois. We discuss three different situations, which give rise to different results for a minor's inheritance:

  • The decedent dies intestate (without a will in trust);
  • The decedent dies with a will but not a trust; and
  • The decedent has a revocable living trust in place at the time of death.

We explain how routs appoint a guardian of the estate if the decedent dies intestate, and the difference between minors inheriting through a will and through a trust.
