The Initial Steps in a Colorado Probate
There are many legal issues that need to be handled right away after someone passes away. We can help you with every single one of them, including:
- Obtaining Letters Testamentary or Letters of Administration
- Solidifying your authority as Personal Representative (formerly called an Executor or Executrix)
- Publishing proper notices to creditors
- Sending out your Information of Appointment to interested persons
- Handling creditor claims
- Valuing and distributing assets
- Drafting personal representative deeds
- Distributing and selling homes or other real estate
Each probate estate is different and can require different strategies in order to ensure that everything goes as quickly and as smoothly as possible. Our attorneys can guide you through the process and make sure you complete all of the steps while staying out of trouble with the courts.
If you are having issues outside of Colorado and need help with an ancillary probate, you can rely on our firm as well. Out-of-state probate is even more complicated and many extra issues become involved. Wondering if you need an attorney at all? We can help you decide if one is needed.
