Why You Need a Thornton Estate Planning Law Firm

Estate Planning

Our Thornton Estate Planning Law Firm can assist you with simple or complex estate planning. Our estate planning lawyer can help you preserve your farmland, equipment, home, and livestock while ensuring your financial well-being. Your assets and property can be held in trust for transfer to your beneficiaries. Estate planning eliminates the unknown, increases the value of your estate, reduces property tax, and eliminates probate expenses. Our estate planning lawyer can help you with:

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

Probate

If your loved one died suddenly without leaving a will, our estate planning probate attorney can bring order to your chaos and grief. Probate officers help those who care for vulnerable adults who can no longer take care of themselves. Our attorney can petition the court to allow you to manage your incapacitated relative’s finances. As guardian, you’ll be solely responsible for the relative’s finances, daily care, personal hygiene, and medical care. You'll be the executor of your loved one's estate upon his or her death.

Forming a Trust

When our estate planning attorney forms your trust, he'll ask you:

  • Who should inherit your assets?
  • Who will handle your finances for you?
  • Who will make medical decisions in your best interest?

Your trust consists of the:

  • Deeds and titles to your property
  • IRA balances
  • Firearms
  • Special needs provisions

Your trust contains Colorado transfer-on-death (beneficiary) deeds which allows you to own and control your property until your death or you are no longer able to take care of yourself. When you die, the deed to your property transfers to your intended beneficiaries.

Special Needs Provisions

Our estate planning lawyer can help you form a special needs trust to plan for a loved one with a disability. Your special needs trust transfers guardianship of a loved one to a conservator and explains the duties of the guardian. The conservator must maintain disability payments and Medicaid health insurance for the individual with a disability.

Your Will

Your will states your wishes for the distribution of your property. Your will describes how you want your property transferred to your surviving family members after you die. Your will can name a guardian for your children if you die or become totally disabled while your children are young. Your will names the administrator of your estate.
