  • What is the Difference Between Formal and Informal Probate?

    Informal and formal probate both refer to the kinds of procedures that are used to appoint a representative for an individual to handle various matters and accept a will for probate. The most commonly used of the two is informal probate, which is the least difficult to enact if assets are straightforward and the parties involved are in agreement with each other.

    However, formal probate will be required under certain circumstances, such as when:

    • There are issues with a will
    • Heirs are missing or unknown
    • Heirs are still minors
    • The estate is insolvent, i.e., debts exceed assets owned
    • There are disputes or there are likely to be disputes among heirs
    • Problems are expected with the administration

    The informal probate process will entail presenting an application to a registrar as opposed to a judge. Registrars then approve the estate and ensure completion of all paperwork, but won’t be involved once they have approved the estate.

    Formal probate, on the other hand, involves a probate attorney. The formal process can be more complicated and involve many steps, which is why it’s best to consult with a probate attorney at The Gasper Law Group who can walk you through formal probate in Colorado.

  • Can You Avoid Probate in Colorado?

    Yes, you can avoid probate in Colorado by making a living trust, which will prevent any asset you own from going to probate courts, including bank accounts, real estate, and more. You can do so by creating a trust document that names a specific individual to serve as a successor trustee following your death. You will then need to transfer ownership of your property to yourself as the trustee identified in the trust.

    You can also avoid probate in Colorado through:

    • Joint ownership of property
    • Payable-on-death designations for bank accounts
    • Transfer-on-death real estate deeds
    • Transfer-on-death registration for securities
    • Simplification of probate procedures for small estates

    "A courteous, respectful, and efficient group in all phases and aspects of due diligence"
    Highly professional team of attorneys and paralegal staff who work hard to reach the best outcomes for their clients. A courteous, respectful, and efficient group in all phases and aspects of due diligence, and discovery with effective preparation of cases entrusted to them. The partner representing me, Ms. Caryn Adams was truly impressive in her knowledge of the law, her empathy, and her care for getting the best possible resolution in my favor in pre-trial negotiation. And I have no doubt she and her team would be just as dedicated and efficient in more complex defense situations. I recommend them highly and without reservation in all areas of the law in which they are eminently qualified.
