My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: Illinois
I'd need your help in order to find out some more about the Illinois inheritance law related to the estate abroad. The actual situation is as follows: my father died this year. The heirs are: the wife and 3 sons. A part from the estate in USA there is also a house in Romania that was inherited by my father from his mother. The Romanian Civil Law establishes that the applicable inheritance law is that of the state where the deceased had his last residence...in this case the Illinois state. My question is: In this particular case, according to the Illinois inheritance law where should be conducted the inheritance procedures? In Illinois or in Romania?
Thank you for your help.
