What is a Illinois Simple Will?

An Illinois Simple will is a testamentary document that provides a set of instructions, to both your family and to the Illinois probate court, on how you’d like your Illinois estate to be handled.  Most Illinois simple wills provide clear instructions on how the testator, (the person making the simple will), would like their property distributed after his or her death.
