Estate Planning Services in Jefferson County
After someone dies, the process of handling his or her estate is known as probate . Many people think that simply having a will takes care of all post-death matters. However, the probate process entails the determination of the will as valid by the probate court, the collection of all the assets of the estate, the payment of the debts of the estate, and the distribution of the remaining proceeds of the estate.
The firm invites you to contact the probate lawyer of The Oliver Law Firm, P.C., to find out about the probate process and how we can help you settle your loved one's estate.
How We Can Help You
The probate process includes:
- Naming the administrator (the person designated to take care of the estate)
- Notifying creditors, beneficiaries, and others of the death
- Gathering and inventorying property
- Finalizing estate (paying debts, taxes, and any remaining expenses)
The Oliver Law Firm, P.C. is located in Arvada, Colorado, and serves the entire Denver metro area for estate planning and probate. When an individual dies with a will, the estate is classified as "testate" and the property of the estate is distributed according to the terms of the will. When an individual dies without a will, the estate is known to be "intestate," and is determined by state statute. Either way, working with an experienced probate attorney can ensure your estate administration is handled efficiently and in a timely manner.
