Meurer Law Offices, Denver, Colorado
After your passing, family and loved ones are often left in distress and without direction regarding your preferences. With the help of the Meurer Law Offices and a Disposition of Last Remains document, you can relieve this burden while ensuring your wishes are officially known and carried out as you intended.
A Disposition of Last Remains provides clear, specific guidance as to what you prefer in regards to organ donation, as well as burial, cremation or even donating your body to science. It will also communicate instructions regarding your ceremonial preferences and notify memorial and funeral service directors who you’ve chosen to be in charge of your arrangements.
Our attorneys at the Meurer Law Offices have witnessed how effective the Disposition of Last Remains document can be at relieving a great deal of stress and confusion, as well as helping to avoid disputes amongst loved ones during their time of distress. It’s truly a gift that you can provide to your family, and we’ll help put together a document that allows them to maintain unity upon your passing.
To further protect your rights, the legislature even passed the Colorado Disposition of Last Remains Act (C.R.S. section 15-19-101 through -108) to prevent an interested party from interfering with preferences stated in your Disposition of Last Remains. It authorizes you to provide advanced written instructions, binding all parties to follow directions in regards to whom you put in charge of arrangements, as well as your burial, cremation, entombment, funeral arrangements, memorial service.
If funeral arrangement choices are currently addressed in your will or a power of attorney document, your Disposition of Last Remains will revoke all prior statements. By working with an attorney at the Meurer Law Offices in Denver, your disposition document will be prepared according to Colorado law and all other legal paperwork discussing these matters can be updated accordingly.
