Probate

Probate

Probate is an area of law that deals with two basic areas: distribution of property belonging to persons who have died (decedents’ estates) and ongoing care and maintenance of persons who are not able to make financial and healthcare decisions for themselves. Probate matters are administered by the various county probate courts in Arizona.

In the area of decedent’s estates, probate is concerned with property that is owned solely by the person who died. When an individual dies it is often necessary to start a probate proceeding in order to clear title to property and to assure there are no future disputes over the property in the person’s estate once it is distributed. Often, a creditor will force a probate in order to collect the debt.
