Compassion, talent and dedication: guiding colorado families and Their Trusted Advisors During Times of Need

Probate Litigation Archives

What are the reasons you can challenge a will in Colorado?

When someone has died with a will, it is not uncommon for a family member or sometimes a friend or a person with a professional relationship with the decedent to have reason to suspect something is not right about the will’s terms or the circumstances around its execution and signing. This often happens when the testator (person who writes and signs the will) made an unusual change to their estate plan, especially if it occurred at a time when they were suffering from problems related to advanced age or illness.

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.   

Unequal bequests to siblings may spur will contest

Here at Chayet & Danzo, LLC, we help clients at every stage of the estate planning and probate process. For example, we help them write wills and trusts to determine who will receive their property. We also assist people after loved ones have died to go through the probate process in court to have wills administered and property distributed as the decedent directed.
