Why You Need a Fort Collins Estate Planning Law Firm

Our Fort Collins Estate Planning Law Firm can advise you in simple or complex estate planning. Planning your estate protects your assets and provides for you and your family if you are suddenly unable to take care of yourself. Estate planning ensures your financial well-being and the transfer of your funds to your beneficiaries. Our estate planning lawyer drafts:

  • Wills
  • Living / revocable trusts
  • Healthcare and financial powers of attorney
  • Medical directives / living wills
  • Conservatorships

Estate Planning Attorney

Our estate planning attorney helps clients through the difficult times of grief. Probate problems occur suddenly when a family member dies without a will. Our attorney can help you with the succession of the family business, your inheritance, and the deceased's federal and state taxes. Our attorney can administrate your estate for you.

Will

A will ensures that your property will belong to your family after you die. Your will allows you to determine: how your assets will be distributed, who will take care of your children, who will manage your trust for your children, and who will act as the executor of your estate.

Probate

If your loved one suffered a catastrophic accident or an elder is suddenly incapacitated, our estate planning probate attorney can bring peace of mind to those who care for vulnerable adults who no longer care for themselves. Our guardianship petition can allow you to manage your incapacitated relative’s finances. As guardian, you’ll be solely responsible for the relative’s daily living, personal hygiene, and medical care.

Trust Formation

Our trust formation lawyer will discuss your options and responsibilities. Your estate is complex if you have numerous beneficiaries and diverse assets. Our estate planning attorney writes the trust documents, but the trust has fiduciary duties. Included in the trust are:

  • Deeds to property
  • IRA balances
  • Firearms
  • Special needs provisions

Fiduciary Duty

Our estate law attorney will identify the deceased’s assets and liabilities. Probate is the process of distributing the deceased assets to creditors, heirs, and beneficiaries based on the will or as decided by the Colorado Probate Court Judge. The guardian, or personal representative, must record all financial transactions, income and expenses, balance the accounting, perform banking tasks, and pay the deceased's 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 deceased's trust for you.
