Plan a Secure Future for Your Estate With Our Informed Guidance

If you want to put a plan in place to ensure the orderly distribution of your assets upon death, you want to hire a knowledgeable attorney to guide you through the process. Similarly, if you have been named executor, administrator, or personal representative of the estate of a loved one, you want an experienced lawyer to help you settle the estate, one who has effectively worked with others in similar situations.

At Nathan J Noble, PC, located in Belvidere, we provide a broad range of services related to estate planning and probate administration to people throughout Rockford and northern Illinois.

Your Estate Plan Deserves a Versatile Attorney

Thinking of your estate plan in the terms of the big picture is important. You may be interested in minimizing taxes or passing a family business or farm to your children. You may want to avoid probate. Because certain choices affect other options, you have to choose wisely. Creating and keeping your estate plan updated is also important, as your needs and desires will likely change over the years.

Build a Plan. Preserve Your Legacy.

Get Started Today

We will help you put together an estate plan that clearly identifies how your personal assets will be distributed upon death. We will prepare and execute all documents necessary to put your plan in place, including:

  • Wills: Ensure that your assets are distributed according to your wishes upon your passing.

  • Trusts: Plan for the future by creating revocable or irrevocable trusts, living or testamentary trusts, or a special needs trust.

  • Powers of attorney: Give another individual the power to make legal decisions in the event you lack the capacity to do so.

  • Health care directives: Provide clear instructions to medical professionals regarding your medical care and treatment should you become incapacitated and unable to do so.

We work with executors, administrators, and personal representatives, making certain they complete the steps necessary to settle the estate. We will help you initiate the probate process, by completing an accounting of the assets of the estate, paying all final debts and taxes of the deceased, and distributing estate property in accordance with the terms of the will.

We also represent parties in probate litigation, including will contests.

Helping You With Veterans Benefits & Medicaid/Medicare Planning

We provide comprehensive counsel to people who believe that they qualify for veterans’ benefits, including members of the American Association of Wartime Veterans (attorney Nathan Noble is a member). We have special training in these types of benefits and know how to help you get qualified.

We also assist clients with Medicaid/Medicare planning so that they can avoid paying any penalties when looking to qualify for Medicaid/Medicare benefits. We will help you create the appropriate trust long before you need a nursing home or other long-term care so that you don’t lose all the assets you have worked hard for over the years to the government.
