In Arizona, the probate process begins when the person who wants to be appointed as personal representative files an application with the probate court. Unlike informal probate, formal probate requires court supervision of the process. A petition for hearing and notice to all interested parties is required to open a formal probate. Documents need to be submitted to the court for approval and signature. This increased level of judicial involvement makes formal probate a more costly and time-consuming process.
The application is filed with the probate registrar and a court hearing not required. Our firm has been assisting clients with estate administration for twenty years. We can help you determine if your matter can be informally probated and guide you through the process.
