Putting a knowledgeable and skilled lawyer in your corner can not only make your life easier, but move the process along much more efficiently and quickly.

There are many reasons for needing an out-of-state estate administration or probate. These reasons usually occur when the dececent:

  • Owned property outside of the state
  • Had a business outside of the state
  • Had ownership interests in land or a corporation out of state
  • Lived in multiple states for equal parts of the year

No matter what reason leads to you needing help with probate out-of-state, we can help.

Ancillary Probate

If you are attempting estate administration from Colorado but need help dealing with assets in a different state, you may need to open what is called ancillary probate. An ancillary probate proceeding happens when you open an estate in Colorado but the deceased individual owned property in another state. The other state will require that a probate proceeding be opened up in their jurisdiction in order to ensure that title is properly passed to a beneficiary or a buyer.

Ancillary probates can be very difficult to handle on your own. Most require the assistance of an attorney who is licensed in the other state in order to make sure the laws are followed correctly.
