What is non-probate property?

Writing a will in Illinois is a good way to ensure that those responsible for the administration of your property after your death know and understand your wishes. However, you cannot necessarily put everything you own into a will. Wills only pertain to probate property, which is a large category that includes many types of tangible and nontangible assets.

Tread carefully when buying your first home

Buying your first home is an exciting time, but you may be nervous. It is a major purchase, and making a mistake may mean years of struggle or discontent with your decision. If you are wise and taking your time, you are likely looking at a variety of properties and comparing the pros and cons of each. The price, the neighborhood, the amenities are all important considerations.

Remarriage and estate planning

If you are one of the many people in Illinois who are preparing to get married for the second or subsequent time, you likely know and appreciate how precious a marriage and family is. In addition to taking vows and sharing a daily life with someone, another way to show your love for a spouse and your other family members is to have plans in place to help them after you die. A solid estate plan can take a big load off of people already struggling to adjust to life without you.
