Make Your Wishes Known

Discuss your options with a probate attorney in Belvidere, IL

If you don't have your wishes in writing in a Will or Trust, the laws of Illinois will dictate where your money goes and who inherits your money when you pass. Preparing your estate is important, especially if you have specific people you'd like to inherit your assets. If you have loved ones who are receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits or other benefits, an inheritance may affect their benefits without the proper Estate planning. Additionally, if you are suffering from dementia, Alzheimer's, a serious disabling condition or disease, or any other physical or mental condition that may affect your ability to care for yourself, a Living Trust may be the best means of making sure your assets work for when you are no longer able to care for yourself. The combination of a Trust and a Will can ease your mind and help your manage or have your loved ones manage your assets during your infirmity and then later transfer your property to your loved ones upon your passing.
