Primary Residence Administration

Silversmith Legal is very experienced in the administration of decedents’ estates. We help the personal representative of an estate navigate through the probate/estate administration process during an understandably difficult time for a family that has lost a loved one.

Probate is the process by which a will is proved through the legal process as valid or invalid. A person can also be determined to have died intestate, without a will. The estate of a person who has died needs to be administered, and a personal representative is appointed by the court to handle the estate administration. In general, the personal representative will collect information regarding assets of the decedent, pay valid debts, expenses of administration and taxes, and then distribute the remaining assets to the appropriate beneficiaries.

The probate process can either be formal or informal and unsupervised, the latter being the case for many of the estates that are administered in Colorado.

Ancillary Probate Administration

Ancillary probate administration is necessary when a decedent was a resident of another state, and passed away owning real property in their individual name within the State of Colorado.

Silversmith Legal takes pride in being engaged by many out of state law firms and attorneys to assist personal representatives and executors who were appointed by courts in other states.
