What to Do When a Loved One Dies in Colorado

Additional resources provided by the author

Attorney’s guidance: This article cannot explain everything you need to know in the first few days following the death of a loved one. You should establish an early relationship with your attorney to assure that all matters and questions are properly addressed. Seeking your attorney’s advice before you act may avoid more costly legal fees later. Your attorney should be able to provide you with very helpful information and explain the probate process to you. This will help alleviate a large amount of concern.
