Complete Ancillary Probate Matters Efficiently
In simple terms, ancillary probate is a legal process for transferring assets in one state to a probate case underway in another state. In the words of the Colorado Judicial Branch, “Through an ancillary filing, the Colorado court acknowledges [an executor or administrator appointed] by another state and gives that person the authority to act in Colorado.”
The Law Offices of David A. Helmer, LLC, advises and assists with ancillary probate processes involving two states that include Colorado. If you are an executor in Colorado and need help to gain access to your deceased loved one’s property in Florida or elsewhere, we can help. Likewise, if you are an executor in another state and seek assistance with the property that your family member owned in Colorado, we are committed to guiding you through the necessary steps accurately and cost-effectively.
Don’t Miss Essential Steps Or Deadlines
Some people try to resolve paperwork for property that a deceased loved one owned in another state by following instructions they find online – only to miss a critical step and land in trouble. Resolving the problem may be much more expensive than what getting correct, timely legal advice would have cost. Our firm’s strong reputation and decades of experience reassure clients that we are well-suited to handle this aspect of estate administration efficiently.

Fulfilling all requirements for ancillary probate procedures involves painstaking details and strict requirements.

[Clerks] or self-help personnel cannot guarantee whether they will be accepted.” With many issues to handle during the administration of an estate, it is obvious to many thoughtful people that an experienced lawyer’s guidance is essential in ancillary probate cases.
