Are there different types of Probate in Arizona?
In Arizona, there are three main types of probate proceedings.
-Formal Probate: This is used when there are legal issues in administering the estate. For example, someone could challenge the will’s validity, or the will’s wording could be open to multiple interpretations.
-Informal Probate: When a will is valid and unchallenged, the executor can move through the estate through probate with minimal court intervention.
-Supervised Probate: Any interested party can request that every step of the probate process occurs with court supervision. In supervised probate, the personal representative must get the court’s approval before proceeding with any of the probate steps.
