Using Revocable Living Trusts to Avoid Probate in Kane County, Illinois

In this article, our Saint Charles will and trust lawyers explain how trusts are used to avoid probate. Probate is a court case that is typically required to distribute your assets if you pass away owning any real estate outside of a trust or more than $100,000.00 of non-real estate assets outside of a trust. We want to use revocable living trusts as an estate planning vehicle to avoid probate because it can be costly to your estate, stressful to your family, and delay the distribution of your assets to your loved ones.

Naming Executors and Trustees as Fiduciaries

In this article, our Saint Charles will and trust attorneys explain the importance of naming trusted fiduciaries to manage your estate.  An executor is the person named in your will who is responsible for administering the assets in any part of your estate that is required to go through probate.  A trustee is the person named in your trust to ensure that the wishes stated in your trust are effectuated.  The responsibility of a trustee may last for many years depending on the age of your beneficiaries and the provisions of your trust.
