Probate & Trust Administration
When a loved one dies, it can be a very overwhelming experience, with family not knowing the full scope of what needs to happen or the order in which events are to occur. At Robinson | Bailey PC, we specialize in working with clients to help make the administration of an estate a smooth and organized process. We assist our clients step-by-step with a combination of attorney oversight and office assistant support.
Probate, sometimes referred to as estate administration, is the process of transferring assets when a family member dies. In some cases, where the estate is not taxable and the spouse is the sole beneficiary via jointly held assets, the process may be as simple as showing or recording a death certificate. In other cases, estate administration is conducted through Colorado’s court system through a judicially-streamlined probate process. The administration of an estate that is not subject to an estate tax is normally completed within a year.
In addition to estate administration, Robinson | Bailey PC also assists corporate and individual trustees with trust administration. Trust administration is the process of administering a trust based upon the terms of the trust agreement. We are also available to help clients who are beneficiaries of a trust to understand how the trust works and facilitate relations with the trustee.
