What Is a Will?

A will is a stack of papers where you state:

  • Where your assets will go
  • Who is in charge (Personal Representative)
  • Who will take care of any minor children

Our Colorado Springs attorneys can help you be the hero your family deserves by putting a plan in place that will protect them long after you have passed. Contact us at 719-249-2785 to schedule an appointment to sit down with one of our lawyers.

What Are the Consequences of Not Having a Will?

The lack of a will lets the law decide where your assets go. If you pass away while your children are minors, a judge will decide who should raise your children – there’s the possibility of foster care. Our team can help you put a plan in place that will allow you to sleep at night knowing your children and assets are protected.

Does a Will Avoid Probate?

Nope. A will is an instruction sheet for going through probate. However, a good estate plan will likely include additional documents, like a beneficiary deed or trust, that work together to avoid probate.
