How to choose an executor

Illinois families who have suffered a loss may discover just how much planning and effort it takes to manage an estate when a person passes away. Choosing an executor for estate administration is a task unlike any other. The decision to choose the person who will act as an executor is a serious one because the executor will play a significant role in probate, personal property and wealth protection matters when a person passes.

How can you shield assets from the probate process?

Estate planning is something that not everyone does, even though it is something that everyone should care about and address. but we are human, and as such, we are imperfect. We prioritize things we shouldn't, and leave important things on the back burner. Estate planning is often one of these "back burner" items. For those that do address their estate in a timely and appropriate fashion, avoiding the probate process is a goal that most people strive for.
