what percentage does a first cousin receive in intestate estate when there are no other heirs but first and second cousins

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you with your legal question.

The rules of intestate distribution in Illinois hold that where the only remaining relatives are cousins and second cousins, the cousins would take the entire estate equally. The second cousins do not inhereit.
