Schaumburg Estate Planning Attorney

Cook County Wills and Trusts Lawyer

Estate planning involves making legal plans and arrangements for what will happen to your assets and your dependents in the event of your death. It also involves making arrangements for who will make your medical and financial decisions should you become incapacitated. Having a comprehensive and durable estate plan in place is invaluable. During some of the most challenging times of your lives, these documents can help you and your family members avoid unnecessary hardship and distress while granting you the peace of mind that your wishes have been properly expressed.

At Anderson Attorneys, P.C., we assist clients in developing personalized estate plans that are effective and enforceable. Attorney Jonathan Anderson has been helping individuals and couples through the estate planning process for 30 years, and we are experienced in handling all types of personal and financial situations.

Do You Need an Estate Plan?

It is wise for every adult to have an estate plan, but it is particularly important for those who own property and/or have dependents. A will is typically the cornerstone of any estate plan. Without a will, the court will determine what happens to your assets and your dependents based primarily on the state's statutes. The only way to ensure that your wishes will be respected is to express them in a properly executed will. Having a living will or power of attorney to document your preferences regarding your medical care and/or property in the event of incapacitation is essential for everyone, as no person is exempt from accident or illness that could cause incapacitation.

We work with people at all stages of life on estate plans. We also assist clients in updating existing estate plans. Whenever there is a significant life change such as a marriage, a divorce, a birth, or a death in the family, it is wise to review your estate plan and make changes accordingly. Likewise, if you acquire any new assets of value, you will want to update your will to include them.

Probate Litigation Representation

When an individual dies, the estate goes into probate. During probate, the individual's will is validated and administered. If the individual did not have a will, the court will administer the estate according to the laws of intestate succession. If a will or trust is disputed, probate litigation may be needed. We are skilled in handling probate matters, including the litigation of contested wills or other estate disputes. We work with family members, executors, and potential beneficiaries. We always strive to ensure that the decedent's wishes are respected and that our clients' interests are protected.
