Resource: State Judicial Posts New Probate Forms, Instructions

State Judicial recently updated a bundle of probate forms of interest to all Colorado attorneys practicing in trusts and estate law, particularly attorneys owning CBA-CLE‘s 2009 Portable Green Book and Colorado Probate System, both of which were published before the revised forms were announced. The new forms are already in effect, and practitioners should begin using them immediately.

All forms are available in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) and Microsoft Word formats. Many are also available as Word templates; download templates from State Judicial’s Probate Instructions and Forms page.
