What Is a Will?
Back to Chicago Law Firm Video FAQs
A will is a document that details what will happen to your assets when you pass away. That will gets executed in court, so that’s a common misconception that a will avoids court. No, a will goes through court and that’s why we call the person in the will the executor. That person gets court authority to execute on the directions on your will, so that’s why we call the person on the will the executor.
