Compassionate Representation For Probate In Arizona
After a relative or another loved one passes away, their estate may need to go through probate. This complicated legal proceeding can leave survivors feeling exhausted and stressed.
At the Law Office of Tony S. Cullum, PLLC, our attorney provides counsel and representation to executors, trustees, chosen representatives and others who have authority over people’s assets and health care decisions. Because probate can feel overwhelming, we strive to take the stress out of it and provide a compassionate ear.
What Happens During Probate?
Arizona, like every state, has standard procedures for probating an estate. However, every estate is different. The process may be slightly different from one decedent to another.
Generally, the steps in probate include:
- Creating a plan of action to probate the estate fairly and expeditiously
- Filing the will with the Arizona probate court
- Closing and opening bank accounts
- Transferring assets from the deceased to the estate
- Valuating the estate
- Managing and liquidating assets as appropriate
- Paying taxes and other debts
- Locating beneficiaries
We can assist you with all steps of the probate process. Having represented hundreds of diverse clients, our attorney can address just about any issue that arises.
Why Hire An Attorney?
You have the option of handling probate on your own. However, if you encounter some sort of legal hurdle, you may end up investing much more time, effort and money than if you had hired a lawyer in the first place. An attorney can not only guide you through steps but also advocate for the best interests of you and your family.
