The Law Office of Dionna Reynolds, LLC serves the needs of Chicago area clients by providing practical strategic and legal advice on Probate and Estate Administration.
What is Probate?
Probate is a legal process and examination of a person’s estate after they die. A probate court reviews the deceased person’s assets and determines the distribution of those assets to the proper heirs.
What is Estate Administration?
Estate administration is the process of managing and distributing a person’s property (the “estate”) after death. If the person had a will, the will goes through probate, which is the process by which the deceased person’s property is passed to his or her heirs and legatees (people named in the will). The entire process, supervised by the probate court, usually takes about a year. However, substantial distributions from the estate can be made in the interim.
