When a person dies and their estate enters into probate creditors will have the opportunity to file a claim against the estate. Anyone who has an action against the decedent may file a claim against the estate, including claims for breach of contract, torts, collection of a debt, and any other types of liabilities. Generally, the statute of limitations for probate claims in Illinois provides that a collector has up to two years following the death of the person in question to file a claim against the estate.
