ARIZONA PROBATE LAWYER
In Arizona, Probate is the process of administering a person's estate, either with a will or without a will, called an Intestate estate. If a person did not have a will, property will often pass according to the laws of the state.
Our knowledgable attorneys at The Omni Firm can help you with the probate process including whether the estate needs an executor.
What is the Probate Process?
Once probate begins:
All property and assets of the estate must be accounted for,
All taxes, expenses, and debts must be paid,
Beneficiaries must be identified,
and a Probate plan must be submitted to the court.
Once the court approves the probate plan, the executor is tasked with distributing the estate per the wishes of the testator.
What is an Executor?
An executor is a person who administers the will according to the wishes of the testator. What powers they have can be determined during the probate process, which often include paying the testator's outstanding debts.
If you're facing the probate process after the passing of a loved one, our Probate attorneys at The Omni Firm can provide guidance, or professional fiduciaries to ease the probate burden during your time of grief.
