A Colorado last will and testament is a legal document that allows a testator (the person to whom the will belongs) to communicate their wishes with regard to the distribution of personal, fiduciary, or real property upon their death. This document ensures all property left behind will be properly dispersed in accordance with the testator’s instructions among family, friends, domestic partners, charities, or whomever else the testator names as a beneficiary. Under Colorado law, a will document must be signed by the testator before two (2) or more competent witnesses or before a notary public.
