An estate plan may consist of documents such as financial and medical powers of attorney, a living will, a revocable living trust, and/or a last will and testament. These documents help to plan for guardianship of minor children, possible incapacitation, end-of-life decisions, death, the distribution of your property after your death, and your memorial or funeral wishes. There are multiple ways to accomplish your goals, such as by changing real property deeds or completing beneficiary designations. The Colorado laws concerning wills, powers of attorney, trusts, fiduciaries, and real property all come into play when creating an estate plan. Let Myers Law LLC, experienced estate planning attorneys in Boulder, Colorado, assist you in this process. Call today for a free initial case evaluation. It is our pleasure to assist you.
The death of a loved one can be devasting to surviving family members. While grieving, the last thing the family needs to worry about is validating a will, getting a personal representative (or executor) appointed, securing real estate and property, obtaining appraisals, dealing with creditors and payment of debts, and distributing property. Probate, also called “estate administration,” is the process by which a deceased person’s will and property are handled in court. A probate case may be required even if the deceased person died without a will, or “intestate.”
Probate procedure and the legal terminology in the Colorado Probate Code can be confusing for a non-attorney.
