Using Revocable Living Trusts To Avoid Costly Probate Proceedings

In this article, our DuPage County trust attorneys explain how trusts can be used to avoid costly probate cases.

Probate is a court case that is generally necessary in Illinois whenever an individual passes owning any real estate outside of a trust or more than $100,000.00 of non-real estate assets outside of a trust. Probate cases last approximately a year and tend to cost 5% to 10% of the value of the estate in attorney fees and court costs. While the probate case is ongoing, your loved ones will not have access to the assets that you wish them to inherit. Our DuPage County trust attorneys can assist you in creating a trust and transferring your major assets into the trust so that when you pass, your loved ones can administer your estate immediately and without the need to hire an attorney.

Should I Have A Will or a Trust . . . or Both?

In this article, our DuPage will and trust attorneys explain the differences between wills and trusts.  Trusts and WIlls both allow you to appoint an executor to manage your estate when you pass and to arrange for the distribution of your assets according to your wishes.  However, trusts have the added benefits of allowing your estate to bypass the probate process.  Families with minor children will often have both a will and a trust, because a will allows you to appoint guardians for minor children and a trust will allow you to place a trustee in charge of those assets until your children reach an age at which you feel they will be responsible enough to manage the assets for themselves.
