In Arizona, Probate is a legal process used to administer both testate and intestate estates. The probate process can be used to authenticate a will or determine the heirs of an estate, appoint a Personal Representative of the estate, identify and notify creditors, establish an inventory and accounting that details date of death values of estate assets, pay costs of administration and any final debts, prepare and file final tax returns, and distribute the remainder of an estate to the named devisees and heirs.
In Arizona, if an individual established a Trust during their lifetime or created a testamentary Trust, such Trust needs to be properly administered. The trust administration process involves managing the property in the Trust as directed, which may include distributing the trust assets to the named beneficiaries. The administration of a trust may be a simple process.
However, some trust estates are more complex and require a much more involved trust administration process. Our law firm handles both simple and complex trust administration matters. All trust matters, whether simple or complex, should follow basic steps to minimize potential exposure to liability for the Trustee, and the attorneys at Mazza Law are here to guide you through that process.
