Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
New: Power of Attorney forms
The New Illinois Power of Attorney Act took
effect January 1, 2015. The law enabled
new forms for the Power of Attorney for Health
Care and Power of Attorney for Property.
Both forms are important for protecting your
future and estate planning. They designate
someone to act on your wishes if you she become
disabled or suffer a medical emergency.
Call your attorney to discuss which forms
can help you. An experienced attorney can
modify the forms to meet your specific needs and
provide for situations that the
legislature did not consider.
New: Transfer on Death Instruments

transfer residential property upon death, but is
