Schaumburg Lawyers for Drafting Wills

Many estate plans begin with a will. A will is a formal document that contains your wishes in regard to your property, assets, and much more. An effective will must be customized to meet your unique needs, and may address considerations, including:

  • Appointing an executor to manage your estate;
  • Settling your debts and obligations;
  • Dividing your assets among your chosen beneficiaries;
  • Allocating a portion of your estate to charity;
  • Funeral and burial details and expenses; and
  • Appointing a guardian for your minor children.

Our attorneys will help you create a will that addresses all of your relevant concerns while ensuring that the document will hold up under the scrutiny of probate or a will contest.

Trusts Attorneys in Cook County

For some families, a trust may provide added flexibility and control over assets compared to a will. In other cases, a trust or trusts may be utilized alongside a more basic will. A trust is a legal arrangement that allows for the transfer of an asset or assets while the creator of the trust is still alive. A will, by comparison, can only be executed upon the creator's death. The skilled attorneys at Lucas Law can help with the creation of all types of estate planning trusts, some of which may even help your estate bypass the need for probate. We can also assist in selecting trustees to manage your trusts and transfer your assets to your beneficiaries.

Illinois Probate Lawyers

The probate process is often necessary to confirm the validity of a will and to facilitate the distribution of assets to your heirs. Probate generally includes sending out legal notices, compiling the estate, selling property as directed, and settling debts. The person whom you have selected as executor of your estate must be prepared for the process of probate and our attorneys can help. With our background in tax law and asset protection, we are equipped to assist executors and estate administrators at every stage of the probate process.
