Who inherits the estate in Colorado? Get the answer with a few clicks:
Find out who will receive any person’s intestate estate and how much of that estate each heir will receive.
The Colorado Intestacy Evaluator℠ uses Colorado’s Probate Code to first determine the legal heirs or next of kin for any person’s intestate estate, then to determine the legal distribution of that estate among those heirs. The annual cost-of-living adjustments are made for the shares of a surviving spouse based upon parental relationship with the deceased’s children and when sharing with the deceased’s parents.
User provided data is evaluated by referencing the Colorado code to examine each potential level of relation for a qualified heir through the last eligible level of relation before escheat.
Each user response is evaluated in comparison with the applicable intestate laws and all prior responses to determine the most relevant information that must be solicited next to determine the legal heirs of the current estate, as well as the dollar value that each heir is entitled to receive.
