Probate is the process of distributing a person’s assets after they’ve passed away. It can be a difficult and emotional process, especially for those who were closest to the person who died.
Unfortunately, probate isn’t something that can be put off. It’s important to have an experienced and compassionate probate lawyer on your side. If you’ve been named the executor of a loved one’s will, hire Carolyn Moller Duncan, P.C. for help.
How probate works
After your loved one passes away, their assets must be distributed to the appropriate people. Depending on the size of your loved one’s estate, settling their affairs may or may not require the involvement of a probate court.
In Colorado, estates valued under $50,000 in total are considered small estates and do not require probate. Larger estates must go through the probate process before the assets can be distributed unless the decedent left behind an uncontested will. If they didn’t leave behind a will or left behind a will but no living trust, the probate process is mandatory.
Just by reading about the basics of probate administration, you’re probably already feeling a little overwhelmed. That’s why you should have a knowledgeable probate lawyer on your side.
