Gathering and Distributing Assets

Probate is the system used for determining the validity of a will and the collection and distribution of assets to creditors and to heirs based upon the direction of a will. In Colorado, probate administration is a straightforward process that includes:

  • Gathering the assets
  • Inventorying the assets
  • Paying creditor claims
  • Paying funeral costs
  • Distributing the remaining assets to beneficiaries
  • Preparing the decedent's final income tax, the Estate's income tax and, the estate tax, if any
  • Preparing and filing the final financial documents
  • Closing the estate.

Though seemingly simple, probate does have hazards for inexperienced administrators. Because it is a form-driven process, accurate details are essential, as is knowledge of tax law and accounting.

Minimizing Costs and Hassles for Families

At The Wells Law Firm, we work closely with personal representatives to discuss options, to determine roles and to minimize costs. From deferring and allowing creditors to handle the estate to having another person named as representative to working through it with a qualified attorney, our legal team is here to assist you. In addition to an attorney and a paralegal, we work with financial professionals, including CPA's, to offer the resources required to administer probate.
