Informal probate in Tucson
If a family member has left property in Tucson or anywhere in Arizona, there are several ways to probate the estate.
Informal probate with or without a will is the simplest scenario, and it works well if the estate doesn’t face any serious legal issues.
Keep in mind that estates with significant legal issues – such as a contested will – are generally subject to formal probate.
And, it’s important to note that some estates will qualify for a simplified form of probate, while others won’t require any probate.
Here in Arizona, many kinds of assets aren’t subject to any probate at all.
Such assets pass onward automatically to the chosen beneficiaries as designated in a will or trust, according to your wishes.
It’s also possible to avoid probate entirely. This can help prevent family squabbles and business continuity problems.
We often help families create living trusts that avoid probate and provide a timely transition and succession for businesses and properties.
In any event, Tucson Legal Documents, LLC can prepare the right documents to help you speed through the probate process as quickly as possible, or avoid it entirely.
Arizona informal probate
Informal probate is the most basic type of probate used in Arizona.
Informal probate is ideal anytime there’s a valid, unchallenged will and the size of the estate is relatively small.
The personal representative (executor) is appointed by the court and allowed to administer the estate with only minimal oversight by the court.
