What Do I Have To Do As A Fiduciary?

As a fiduciary assigned to administer a trust, execute a will or protect the interests of another in any way, you have very important duties and legal obligations that must be met. At Althaus Law, we can help you with all of your tasks and answer your questions, including:

  • What do I do as a trustee of a trust?
  • What do I do now that I am executor of an estate?
  • What are my fiduciary duties to beneficiaries?
  • What if the beneficiaries disagree with what I’m doing?
  • How do I properly act as a guardian?
  • What do I do with a power of attorney?

As a fiduciary in Colorado, some of your duties include the duty of loyalty, the duty of prudence, the duty of impartiality and the duty to account. There are other duties as well, and we can counsel you on the actions you should take depending on your unique situation.

Is My Trustee Acting Properly?
