Can I probate my husband's estate myself? If so, where do I start?

I am located in Illinois. My husband died with no will. I need to probate his estate but don't know where to start. Can I do it myself? If so, what forms should I use?

Hi! My name is Gerald Nordgren! I have spent more than 37 years practicing law in the Chicago area, and have had the chance to probate estates on many occasions. Unfortunately, it is difficult, and often impossible, for a non-lawyer to probate an estate. Most judges will not appoint someone to administrate an estate without an attorney. I would be delighted to have the chance to help you. Please call me at 312-558-9100 (office) or 773-419-5835 (cell). I look forward to hearing from you!
