Why You Need a Colorado Springs Estate Planning Law Firm

Probate

If you don't leave a will when you die, your assets will eventually be divided among your close relatives. Our estate planning attorney understands how difficult it is to suddenly lose a loved one. If your loved one suffered a catastrophic accident or dies suddenly, our estate planning probate attorney can help you. Our probate attorney can file a guardianship petition for you which will allow you to take physical and financial care of your vulnerable adult or children. The guardian is solely responsible for the loved one's finances, daily living, personal hygiene, and medical care.

Your Will

Estate planning includes your will which states your wishes for the transfer of your property. In your will you can specify how your property and assets will be divided among your heirs. You can designate a guardian for your children in case of your death. Your will also names the administrator or executor of your estate.

Trust Formation

Our trust formation estate lawyer will explain your duties, options, and obligations. Your estate is complex if you have numerous beneficiaries or high net worth. A trust, created by our attorney, allows your heirs to immediately take possession of your property without paying taxes on it. The trust includes beneficiary deeds to your principle residence, investment properties, office property, automobiles, trucks, and boats. A beneficiary deed or title is one that is ready for your heir to assume upon your death, but it can not be exercised while you are still alive. Our estate planning attorney writes the legal documents which form the trust. The trust includes:

  • Beneficial deeds, titles, copyrights, trademarks
  • IRA balances, pensions, and retirement accounts
  • Firearms, safety deposit box contents, jewelry
  • Special needs provisions for relatives

Fiduciary Duty

Our estate law attorney can administer your estate beginning with the identification of the deceased’s assets and liabilities. Probate is the process of distributing the deceased's assets to creditors and beneficiaries according to a will or two next of kin, if based on the will. The executor or personal representative must record all financial transactions, deposits and expenses, balance the books, and pay taxes. The final task after the death of your loved one is delivering the assets and remaining money to the named beneficiaries. Our trust lawyer can administer the trust for you.
