My husband has passed away and our home is in his name. How can I get it put into my name? I live in IL.

I am sorry for your loss. Regrettably, there may be more to this than you anticipate. If the house was solely in his name, then its disposition will depend either on his will or state inheritance laws. If your husband did not have a will, state inheritance laws provide that his estate passes half to you and half to his descendants. Consult with a well-recommended local attorney experienced in real estate and probate.
