LAST WILL & TESTAMENT…
A Last Will and Testament Distributes Your Property to Your Spouse and Children After Your Death.
Failure to execute a valid Will renders you “intestate” and allows the probate judge to select the executor of your estate (technically called an “administrator”). Your property is then distributed according to Illinois probate law and not necessarily as you would have desired. For example, your spouse would only receive 1/2 of the estate and your children would receive the other 1/2. You may not want that. You may want 100% to go to your surviving spouse. With a Last Will and Testament, you can distribute your property according to your wishes – not the State of Illinois’ wishes.
Advanced estate planning today can give you peace of mind – knowing that if something catastrophic were to happen to you, your family would be protected by your property being distributed according to your wishes. The Schaller Law Firm can give you peace of mind by drafting a Last Will and Testament.
