Trust Administration in Colorado
Help from Our Denver Probate Lawyer
Upon the death of the grantor of a trust, the successor trustee, who is named in the document, assumes responsibility for administering the trust and its assets. Although trust administration is simpler and less formal than probate, the trustee must attend to duties dealing with the trust assets, creditor claims, and taxes.
Trusts can be very difficult for an inexperienced trustee to interpret, yet it is important that the trustee follow the terms of the trust explicitly. To simplify the trust administration and reduce the stress on family members, it is wise to seek professional help. An attorney skilled in trust law and trust administration procedures can be invaluable in this regard. Our firm can help resolve issues quickly, helping settle the estate for the benefit of the heirs.
