This is the first in a 9 part series of blogs about Wills in Colorado.  

A will is a document often created in an estate plan.  It can be titled as "Last Will and Testament of John Doe" or "Will of John Doe."  A will is made and signed by a testator (male) or testatrix (female) and provides instruction for what the testator wants to happen after his or her death.

So who can make a will?

A testator must be 18 years or older and of sound mind.  A testator must generally know:

  • what his assets are,
  • who his family members are,
  • how his will affects who will inherit from him, and
  • his will must represent his wishes.

In addition, a testator must sign a will voluntarily and not be under any contstraint or undue influence by another person.
