Acting As The Personal Representative / Executor

If you have agreed to act as a Personal Representative / Executor and qualify for appointment, we can guide you through the administration process and assist you in completing your duties. Among other duties, a Personal Representative / Executor must provide an inventory and appraisal, notify creditors, handle claims against the estate, account to beneficiaries, and handle tax matters. The probate process can be complex and time-consuming.This is particularly true if:

  • The decedent’s financial affairs were left in disarray
  • There are questions or concerns related to the value of the estate
  • Multiple parties are involved in settling the estate
  • The interested parties don’t agree or are suspicious of each other

 We have the tools to make estate administration as easy as possible for you and we’ll provide solutions that are easy to understand.

Probate Proceedings vs Estate Distribution In Arizona

Not all estate distribution processes need to be handled the same way. If an estate is small enough and there are no disputes of the estate, then there is the potential to distribute the estate to the beneficiaries without any court proceedings. 

Even if the estate does not allow for an easy distribution, there are options to have informal proceedings to handle the administration of the estate rather than having formal proceedings. The path forward for your loved one’s estate administration can vary based on your unique situation. Because of this, it is important to contact us for a free case evaluation so that we can help relieve some of the stress that comes with this process and help you understand what your next steps need to be.

Nothing but calming, compassionate, informative, and helpful through the probate process. We are now updating our estate plan and continue to receive their attentiveness and professionalism.
