Do I Really Need a Will in Colorado?

You are not required to have a will in Colorado, but a will can make life easier for your loved ones when you die. You need a will if you want to designate which family members or friends will receive specific property from you. If you have children, you can use a will to name the person you want to care for your children. You also can use a will to give money or property to a charity.

If you die without a will in Colorado, a court will follow Colorado's intestate succession laws to determine who receives your assets. The intestate succession laws include a list of people who can inherit from you. At the top of the list are your spouse and children. If you are not married and do not have children, the court will move down the list until it finds a family member to inherit from you. If you do not have living relatives to inherit from you, your assets will go to the state of Colorado.

Intestate succession gives courts a backup plan for people who do not have wills, but you will have no control over who inherits from you if you rely on intestate succession. It is better to have a will, so you can choose what happens to your assets.
