Things to consider when disinheriting your children

Some people in Colorado believe that disinheriting their children is cold and callous. But, there are legitimate reasons why a person may decide to do so. According to, some parents disinherit their kids because there are estrangement issues, they may not have a good relationship with them or their children are already financially well off.

Who should you choose to execute your will?

One of the most critical parts of putting together a will in Colorado is selecting an executor who understands your intentions and desires, and is committed to allocating your possessions in conjunction with what you have recorded. Being proactive about preparing your will can provide security for your loved ones and peace of mind for you, and is facilitated by an executor who takes your wishes seriously.
