Colorado Simple Wills Attorney
Ensure Your Estate Is Protected with a Last Will & Testament
A last will and testament is a document that instructs your beneficiaries on how your property, assets, and personal belongings should be distributed to your heirs and beneficiaries when you pass away. When you pass away without a valid will, your estate is declared “intestate” and must go through the probate court process where a judge will determine how your assets are distributed. Probate can be time-consuming, expensive, and complicated.
At The Legal Quill, our Colorado simple wills lawyer can advise you accordingly and help you prepare a legally valid will. When you choose our affordable, unbundled services, you’ll get only the services you need – nothing more.
Benefits of a Last Will & Testament
A properly prepared will allows you to:
- Name and delegate your property and assets to specific individuals, charities, or organizations
- Provide a guardianship for a minor child
- Provide someone to manage any property you leave to a minor child
- Name your personal representative who will be in charge of carrying out your will’s instructions
Wills can only be filed by someone 18 years of age or older who is of sound mind. A valid will requires either the signature of two witnesses or a notary. You can also make your will “self-proving,” which can speed up the process of validating your will by the probate court. This process is done by attaching a sworn statement signed by you and your witnesses as to the will’s validity.
