Do You Need a Mesa Probate Lawyer?

According to the laws in Arizona, estates possessing real estate with a value in excess of $100,000 or personal property with a value in excess of $75,000 are subject to probate. The probate process can be expensive and time-consuming, which is why securing professional legal counsel is so crucial.

Proudly serving clients in Mesa, Fountain Hills, Tempe, and Scottsdale, our attorneys at Walk-In Wills are highly experienced when it comes to probate. Along with serving your best interests in court, we also take the time to educate and inform clients on what they can expect.

Understanding the Probate Process

The probate process entails several key steps, including proving the will is valid, notifying others, accounting for all assets, paying off outstanding debt, and distributing assets to heirs. In many cases, the probate process progresses smoothly. However, complications can arise.

If any of the heirs find fault with the will, they may choose to challenge the document. Contesting a will increases the length of probate, but it can also rack up exorbitant costs. The probate process can also become more complex if there are questions about the most recent version of the will or if any of the beneficiaries named in the document die before receiving their inheritance.

How a Probate Attorney Can Help

A probate attorney can help the executor of your will navigate the ins and outs of probate court. For instance, a legal professional can help with tasks like identifying assets and notifying creditors. They can also assist with taxes and other financial matters.

Most importantly, a probate lawyer can help deal with any challenges to the will. Family conflict can become quite severe during probate, so your executor must have access to quality legal advice to ensure they make the best decisions.
