Colorado probate: What about the debts of the deceased?

Wrapping up someone’s affairs after he or she has died is a complicated responsibility that falls to the person who is appointed by the court to be personal representative of the estate. One of the main duties of the personal representative in most situations is to put out direct or published notices to the creditors of the deceased according to the specific procedures established by Colorado law. The notice tells creditors that they can file claims either with the personal representative or the appropriate state court by a particular deadline as required by law.
