In the last few weeks, we have talked about a lot of critical issues relating to estate planning. Charitable trusts can go a long way towards helping your loved ones. Wills, and the act of frequently updating them, can lead to a prosperous future for your beneficiaries. And your executors have a major responsibility to carry your estate through to the finish line.
Through all of the issues, and the many that we haven’t named in the last few weeks, there is a need for the grantor or his or her beneficiaries to have legal help.
There are so many intricate legal details that need to be dealt with when an estate is administered and executed, in addition to the broader issues that are at play when an estate is administered or executed.
- Identifying property and assets that belong to the estate is a major part of the job, and then protecting those assets to ensure they get to the appropriate people is critical.
- Finding heirs, identifying creditors, and resolving any disputes that existed at the time of the grantor’s death is a demanding and important part too.
- And of course, there are the taxes to resolve and probate process that needs to be followed.
For any issues that relate to an estate — whether you are the grantor or a beneficiary — you should consult with an attorney as soon as possible. Here at The Hughes Law Firm, we can help Denver residents that are involved i an estate dispute or are trying to finalize and settle their estate.
