Understanding Probate

Probate is a court-supervised procedure for validating a will (if there is one), paying debts and distributing the property of a deceased person. Even if there is no will, the decedent’s estate might still need to be probated to transfer the estate’s assets. Probate laws vary from state to state. Fortunately, probate in Colorado follows the Unified Probate Code and allows for simplified procedures compared with the systems that are still in place in many other states. 

Probate, however, is not the only way to deal with a decedent’s estate. The estate might also qualify for a small estate proceeding, which is appropriate when the assets are less than $64,000 and no real estate is involved. If the decedent had a trust, it might also be possible to avoid probate. It is also possible to structure the ownership of various assets to avoid probate as well.


We are here to assist you with any probate questions you might have and would be happy to sit down with you to address your questions. Call our office at (719) 249-6240 today.
