Illinois Probate Lawyers
The process of probate is one that can be time-consuming and complicated. During the proceedings, the probate court will look to verify the validity of the deceased person's will. If no will exists, the probate court may divide the person's estate according to applicable state law. In Illinois, a will must be presented for probate before it can be implemented. The estate of any person who died without a will must also be presented. Attorneys Ausaf K. Farooqi and Naveed S. Husain have substantial probate experience and know how to help make the process more efficient. We strive to achieve results as quickly as possible while keeping you fully involved at every stage of the proceedings.
At Farooqi & Husain Law Office, we also understand that through effective estate planning, it may be possible to avoid probate altogether. Our attorneys can help you or your loved one develop strategies for estate planning that include trusts and powers of attorneys in addition to wills so that your family' future is secure.
