Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Good Evening. My name is ***** ***** I am licensed Estate Attorney. Do you know what County or State your father passed in?
No problem. Cedaredge, Co is located in Delta County.
First you need to contact the Delta County Probate Clerk and ask if a Will is on record for your father or if an estate was opened in his name. They may request you submit an affidavit proving you are his daughter. The estate is public record but not the terms of the Will; however, once you prove you are his daughter you may request a copy of the Will sent to you for your review. Usually you only have to pay a copy fee to the Clerk. The Clerk will tell you how many pages the Will is and how much the copy fee is.
If an estate was opened, you, as the daughter, are required to be served notice of the administration of the estate, whether or not you were listed in the Will.
If you go to the Seventh Judicial District of Colorado, you can do a case search. Click on Court Dockets and enter your father's name. You may be able to find records of an estate through that search.
