Compassionate Probate Services

The law of probate concerns how the assets and liabilities of a deceased person—known as the testamentary estate—will be distributed upon their death. In probate proceedings, courts try to resolve conflicting claims about this issue based on the wishes of the deceased person. However, without live testimony from the decedent about their intent, the court can only rely on evidence such as the decedent’s Last Will and Testament.

During probate proceedings, the court appoints a person to act as the personal representative or special administrator of the decedent’s estate. A personal representative or special administrator has a legal obligation to administer and protect the decedent’s estate according to the decedent’s wishes and Colorado probate law.

At the Law Office of Alexandra White, P.C., we will compassionately guide you through the following probate issues:

  • Informal probate proceedings: The Colorado Probate Code provides an informal probate process in cases where there are no competing claims regarding the decedent’s estate. This process is more expedient than probate proceedings with contested estates.
  • Administration of small estates: Under the Colorado Probate Code, estates valued under $64,000 in personal property and with no real estate can be administered in a special, simplified proceeding.
  • Supervised probate administration: In certain cases, the court must supervise the personal representative in the administration of a decedent’s estate. Typically, matters involving disputes about the appropriate distribution of the estate require court supervision of the probate case. The Court may also supervise administration if the original will cannot be found, or if the registrar has concerns about the authenticity of the will.
  • Appointment of personal representatives or special administrators: The Colorado Probate Code governs the appointment of a personal representative for a decedent’s estate. Typically, this role is determined per the provisions of a valid will. However, Colorado law provides a list of appropriate people to fill this role if there is not an appointment listed in a will. Anyone may be nominated for the role though, if the other qualifying individuals sign nominations, and renounce their right to claim the role.
  • Legal rights and responsibilities of personal representatives or special administrators: A personal representative or special administrator serves as the person responsible for handling the administration of a testamentary estate in place of the decedent. They must adhere to specific powers and duties outlined in the Colorado Probate Code.
