A thoughtful and flexible estate plan will eliminate questions, confusion, and disputes about your intentions and your property after your death. If you want your wishes to be carried out, and want to avoid unintended financial consequences to your estate, you need to work on estate planning while you are physically well and competent to make these important decisions. The Strickler Brennan Catlin Law Firm can guide you through the estate planning process and work with you to form a plan that will provide direction to your family about your health care wishes, protect your assets and guide your family’s future.

A Will is Essential to Protect Your Family’s Future
If you pass away without a will, the probate court may appoint an individual it selects to manage and distribute the assets of your estate, without regard to your wishes or your family’s needs. The probate process takes a minimum of six months to complete in Colorado, and having someone you trust to handle the administration is crucial. Without a will, the government may charge a hefty inheritance tax on the property and money you leave behind, reducing the assets that your beneficiaries receive. Even without inheritance tax, without proper guidance from you, your beneficiaries may not be treated in the way you wish.
To avoid these problems and protect as much of your estate as possible for your beneficiaries, allow our attorneys to help you craft a will that complies with local, state, and federal laws. We’ll help guide you past obstacles that could otherwise render your will invalid and explain issues that may arise given your assets, and creative solutions to address administration of those assets.
