Watch for signs your inheritance is being stolen

Inheritance theft is something that can happen right under your nose. You may have been told time and again that you're going to inherit something only to find out that when your parent, grandparent or other relative dies that whatever you were promised is gone or the bank accounts are nearly emptied.

What you may not know about long-term care planning

Did you know that 30 percent of seniors in Denver live on less than $20,000 per year? And 24 percent of those 60 years old or older receive food stamps? That is a whopping number of the aged population that probably have not planned for long-term health care.

Considering long-term care insurance?

The expenses of round-the-clock nursing home care are exorbitant. Even mid-tier facilities in the Denver area with semi-private rooms can cost between $9,000 and $10,000 per month. According to a study by Genworth Financial, private rooms in high-end nursing homes in the huge Denver-Aurora-Lakewood metropolitan area can cost upwards of $230,000 annually.

Preparing to move your parents into assisted living

You've been working hard to give your parents the care they need as they get older, but it has become too much to take on alone. So, you and your parents have made the decision to have them move into an assisted living facility so they can get the care they need.

Avoiding probate in Colorado

If you’re establishing an estate plan, you are probably familiar with the term “probate.” Probate is the process by which your estate is examined and dispersed after your death. It can be extremely expensive for your family and extremely public – all probate court proceedings are a matter of public record. All estates must go through probate court, but Colorado law allows some ways to establish your estate so that the process is as streamlined as possible.

Lessons from the Prince estate

It's been a year and a half since Prince's passing, but the probate of his estate--the legal process for determining how to reallocate his property--continues. Some of Prince's heirs are now requesting that a new administrator take over the process, accusing their current administrator of mismanagement that has cost them millions of dollars. According to the heirs, the administrator told them that it could take as long as 14 years to finalize Prince's estate.

Estate Planning And What To Do About Your Family Home

No matter your level of income, your home may be one of your most valuable assets. Unlike other types of assets -- such as pension plans, stocks and 401(k) accounts -- homes and long-held vacation properties have sentimental value as well. This can make them hard to let go when the time comes.
