There is a probated estate in El Paso County Colorado. There

There is a probated estate in El Paso County Colorado. There were no heirs found at the time the estate was opened, so the funds were escheated to Colorado Treasury. We have found an heir to the estate, but she is in a wheelchair and highly subsidized with Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps and subsidized housing. She does not want the money because it will jeopardize her assistance and only last her for a year or two. As an heir, can she designate that these funds be donated directly to charity (St. Jude's Children's Hospital) with a small % paid directly to us for our services without jeopardizing her government assistance? The deceased died without a will, never married, no children, parents also deceased. This heir is a sole surviving cousin.

When my now deceased father was still alive, my parents

When my now deceased father was still alive, my parents asked me to go with them to prepare their wills. The lawyer that prepared the will shut down his practice, and his former paralegal can't tell me where or who now is holding their wills if and when we need to update, etc. Is it a situation where any lawyer in the state can access it, or who/where do we go for any answers? Thanks for your help...
