ESTATE ADMINISTRATION — PROBATE

Altus Law Group can assist you with all court proceedings and administering the disposition of a decedent’s probate estate. With proper representation, probate can be a relatively painless process. We assist both with formal and informal probate. Colorado Law allows most probate estates to be administered informally. This is a quicker and generally more cost-efficient administration than formal probate. Probate can be testate (when the deceased left behind a Will), or intestate (when the deceased did not leave behind a Will).

If the decedent created a trust during his or her lifetime, we can also assist with the trust administration. Our experience enables us to smoothly assist you with the entire process in an efficient and effective manner. Our goal is to ensure that the personal representative (executor) of your estate and trustee of your trust (if applicable) are fully compliant with all their fiduciary duties.

We can help the personal representative (executor) through the entire probate process. Sometimes the death of a loved one can bring out some conflicting behavior with beneficiaries and other interested parties. Having a competent attorney to be ready to handle those situations when they occur is the key to avoiding a lengthy and costly probate process.

Altus Law Group has an experienced team dedicated to probate and estate administration.
