Colorado Ancillary Probate
Ancillary Probate in Colorado
Upon the death of a resident of another state who owns Colorado real estate, a Colorado ancillary probate proceeding may be necessary to transfer the property. While the Colorado Ancillary Probate process is relative straightforward, we can ensure that it is done properly, including the preparation of a Personal Representative’s Deed.
The ancillary process first requires obtaining certified, authenticated, or exemplified copies of the appropriate estate documents from the probate proceeding in the state where primary (or domiciliary) probate proceeding was commenced. Those documents are filed in Colorado with a Domiciliary Foreign Personal Representative’s Sworn Statement, and if satisfied, the Colorado Court’s registrar will issue a Certificate of Ancillary Filing. The Certificate of Ancillary filing is recorded with the Personal Representative’s Deed to convey title to the appropriate heirs, devisees, or purchasers of the property.
Our office is very efficient with ancillary probate and may complete the services at our hourly rate or a flat rate, depending on the circumstances. We can often accomplish this entire process within approximately one week of receiving the appropriate documents from the domicilliary probate proceeding.
