Roscich & Marel Law Firm, LLC is committed to helping protect your parental rights. Our Naperville DCFS defense attorney is here to guide you through the process.
The probate process involves proving the validity of the deceased's will and establishing who will be responsible for administering the probate estate. Probate is necessary for all estates in which the decedent had at least $100,000 in assets or real property titled in his or her name. The Naperville probate attorneys at Roscich & Martel Law Firm, LLC advise personal representatives or trustees responsible for managing the estate through all aspects of estate and trust administration and probate in Illinois.
We can assist you with:
- Opening the estate
- Proving the validity of the will
- Resolving will contests
- Obtaining authorization to administer the estate
- Collecting and re-titling assets to the estate
- Making proper notifications to heirs and creditors
- Paying bills and outstanding creditor claims
- Filing and paying applicable taxes
- Disbursing remaining assets in accordance with the will or Illinois intestate laws (laws for estates where there is not a valid will)
- Closing the estate

- Administering trusts
The estate administration process often also includes establishing trusts according to instructions in the will and establishing guardians for minor children.
