Probate in Colorado

Probate is the legal process involving the administration of a deceased person’s will or the estate of a deceased person without a will (known as dying “intestate”). Probate is carried out within a Probate Court and is the process in which:

• A will is declared valid or invalid;
• Property is transferred from the deceased to an heir or a beneficiary named in a will;
• An executor of an estate is given legal standing to handle the estate’s business;
• The liabilities and bills of the estate are paid;
• The assets of the estate are distributed.
